The Little Book of Strategic Peacebuilding
A Vision And Framework For Peace With Justice
So we'd all like a more peaceful world--no wars, no poverty, no more racism, no community disputes, no office tensions, no marital skirmishes. Lisa Schirch sets forth paths to such realities. In fact, she points a way to more than the absence of conflict.
She foresees just peace--a sustainable state of affairs because it is a peace which insists on justice. Chapters include:
- Defining Strategic Peacebuilding
- Values for Peacebuilding
- An Overview of Peacebuilding Processes
- Waging Conflict Nonviolently
- Reducing Direct Violence
- Transforming Relationships
- And more!
