Journal Article: Corporate Engagement for Conflict Transformation

Economic issues have been key factors in many conflicts around the globe. Miall affirms that conflicts are inevitably influenced by economic and political forces. Lederach writes that such forces can interdependently contribute to conflict transformation. On occasions corporate actors can be seen to have played decisive roles, both triggering conflicts and transforming conflict. Hence, corporate actors may be both the boon and the bane for society. In this context, this paper discusses the relationship between corporate actors and conflict transformation with a special focus on Nepal.
