Peacemaking Resources

 

As anyone knows who has ever worked through a difficult conflict, peacemaking is a journey, one that is often long and arduous. As with any journey, it is important to be well-supplied.

We are building this section to become a warehouse of peacemaking resources. In it you will soon find articles, bibliographies, book reviews, case studies, video links, curricula for a variety of courses, and links to peacemaking groups around the world, all organized around broad topic areas. 

We invite you to make generous use of whatever you find helpful. You can also recommend a resource using the form below.
