    schema:reviewBody ""This source book is for people working in areas affected by conflict and violence. Easy to use, well laid out, and including helpful visual methods, it provides a range of practical tools - processes, ideas, visual aids and 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 embodies and reflects the diversity of over 300 practitioners from some 70 countries who, in RTC Working with Conflict courses, have pooled their varied experiences and methods of practice, which have then been adapted to suit a wide range of situations. Examples and cases are drawn from around the world - including Cambodia, Afghanistan, South Africa, Kenya, Northern Ireland and Colombia. The book highlights the options available to individuals and organisations; 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 organisations, publications, videos 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."--Jacket." ;
