One of the most recent developments in the practice of conflict transformation is the systemic approach dubbed “Elicitive Conflict Transformation.” As a practice, it is deeply tied to considerations of identity. This paper summarizes and synthesizes current thinking in the transrational approach to conflict transformation as the current state-of-the-art in peace theory. This approach underlies the practice of Elicitive Conflict Transformation and opens many new frontiers to peace research including an expanded perspective of what identity is and how it shapes the work of conflict transformation.
