    Abstract The research in this volume is based upon the assertion that identities are constructions, delineated by psychological borders, which can enable conflicting or peace-promoting thought and action. It is thus argued that this construction process is essential to understanding the root causes of conflict. The case studies presented in the preceding chapters address three focal questions: How are identities being constructed in the region?; How are these identity constructions related to borders?; and How do these identity-constructions promote peace or conflict? This chapter extracts and summarizes some insights that can be gleaned from the case studies with regard to these questions and explores their implications.
