This source book is for people working in areas affected by conflict and violence. Easy to use, well laid out, and including helpful visual materials, it provides a range of practical tools - processes, ideas, techniques - for tackling conflict. These tools have been developed over a number of years by the organization, Responding to Conflict (RTC), in collaboration with practitioners from around the world.
The book highlights the options available to individuals and organizations; equips them with a basis on which they can plan what responses are possible; and strengthens their capacity to engage in useful interventions. The final chapter provides a list of key conflict-related and peace-building resources, including organizations, publications and websites.
For all practitioners who are working in conflict-prone and unstable parts of the world in the fields of development, relief work, human rights, community relations, peace and reconciliation, this book should prove an invaluable support.
