This book aims to raise awareness among government policy-makers, the media, potential funders and the general public of the extraordinary cost-effectiveness of those working non-violently at the front line of conflict. It is intended as an introduction to the field of conflict prevention and resolution, from the perspective of what has actually worked in the field, using concrete examples.
It includes 50 short accounts from around the world of what ordinary people are doing to stop war - armed only with integrity, stamina and courage. From community level violence to inter-state wars and from 1946 to the present day, these stories highlight the tools and techniques used by ordinary people, NGOs, church groups and many others to help resolve conflicts around the world. Each story includes maps, facts and figures relating to the conflict.
