Book Description

May 10, 2013 1565495799 978-1565495791
Offering a systematic approach that links practical conflict-assessment exercises to the design, planning, monitoring, and evaluation of peacebuilding efforts, Conflict Assessment and Peacebuilding Planning has been carefully and realistically designed to enhance the effectiveness of peacebuilding practice.

Lisa Schirch presents a convenient, logical framework and a wealth of tools for improving planning and implementation. She also helps us to fruitfully question widely held assumptions. Her concise handbook, informed by on-the-ground realities, is an essential resource for building true human security.

Comprehensive, yet strategic in approach, the result of years of practice, this is a clear and systematic overview with practical and appropriate steps for assessment and planning. --John Paul Lederach, University of Notre Dame

A gift for professors and students. Schirch takes a complex, steadily evolving, and acronym-heavy field and makes it intelligible to just about any student. --David Matz, University of Massachusetts, Boston

Schirch provides a wonderful range of analytical tools for peace practitioners from government, international agencies, and the NGO world. --Peter Woodrow, CDA Collaborative Learning Project
