Reconciliation After Violent Conflict

Teresa Barnes David Bloomfield Luc Huyse
Price: $ 30

¿I recommend this handbook for policy makers and practioners seeking to promote reconciliation in war-torn societies and between people divided by conflict. The work of the United Nations, in Kosovo, in East Timor and elsewhere, shows all too well the complexities and the enormous challenges of reconciliation. This publication should be required reading for all the blue helments and international civil servants of the next UN operation and, indeed, for all concerned actors, including local community leaders, in nations beset by conflict.¿ ¿Sergio de Mello, United Nations Human Rights Commissioner

Designed to inform, assist, and equip citizens and leaders in postviolence contexts, this practical handbook documents reconciliation processes, relationship-building strategies, and structures for coexistence. Drawing from case studies in Cambodia, Guatemala, Northern Ireland, Rwanda, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, an inventory of best practices and lessons learned is presented. Sensitive topics including victims, offenders, healing, justice, truth-telling, reparations, and role of the international community are covered.

International IDEA is an intergovernmental organization that works to support electoral processes and strengthen democracy.
