Why is it that, despite historical as well as recent evidence of the infeasibility to prevent wars, the idea of conflict prevention has resurfaced to meet the challenge of the new wars of the post-Cold War era?

Flipp has in recent years become widely spread in Sweden, which is why it is interesting to investigate flipp in a Swedish context. LÄS MER
