Abstract

Gandhi most important contribution to social theory and movement is Satyagraha. It emerged as a dispute resolution weapon. The idea of Satyagraha could be understood in the broader sense of Gandhian socio-political thought which emerged from behavior which he called Experiments with Reality. It was not aimed solely at political reform, but at a total social, financial, economic and cultural reform. As far as its contemporary relevance as a means to achieve justice and conflict resolutions is concerned, diverse social movements around the world drew inspiration from the Gandhian Way and continue to draw it. Satyagraha is the basis of Gandhi’s approach to peace. Satyagraha reflects the spiritual alternative to war. Gandhi taught us a way to use it from micro-level to macro-level for problem-solving and dispute resolution. Satyagraha by Gandhi has proved to be an effective means of political redress. By adopting the Gandhian Way, many of the contemporary challenges associated with war and peace, terrorism, human rights, sustainable development, climate change, socio-political unrest, and politico-administrative corruption could be addressed.
