This chapter examines alternative perspectives on conflict resolution in chapter 7. The authors attempt to broaden the debates beyond the liberal peace and examine the issues which could shape responses to conflict in a different way. They focus on experience, traditions and culture, as well as interaction between actors in a given setting. The authors look at different types of resistance and analyze how and which of those are manifested in Bihar and Jharkhand, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Cyprus. They conclude that everyday resistance can be manifested in a violent, non-violent, short or long-term, sporadic and constant forms, proactive and offensive; it can come as a result of social dissatisfaction; directed and intentional, but also undirected and unintentional.
