Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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
