European Centre for Conflict Prevention with Ifor and State of the World Forum : People Building Peace

35 Inspiring Stories from Around the World



We can learn from the many mistakes made in Kosovo, by attempting to ensure that meaningful conflict prevention strategies are identified and are actually pursued in other situations of latent conflict. This publication documents 35 initiatives of people working for peace worldwide, wether they are working in Northern-Ireland or South-Africa. Focusing on the contributions of different sectors, it illustrates the work of churches, womens organisations, media, business and non-governmental organisations in building peace, and places particular emphasis on the important role played by civil society in resolving conflicts. The role of schools, the arts and sports are gaining increasing recognition. 'Multi-track diplomacy', as it is called, is flourishing, and provides a major reason to hope for a more peaceful world. This books shows why.



'"I invite the reader to take up this book and learn from the rich experiences and visions documented in its pages." Frederico Mayor, Director-General Unesco'
