About this book


Das englischsprachige Berghof Handbook ist das internationale Referenzwerk zum Thema Konflikttransformation.
The Berghof Handbook offers both practitioners and scholars a systematic overview of the state-of-the-art of conflict transformation.
In response to the contemporary challenges of violent conflict and to recent developments in the field of conflict transformation, the Berghof Handbook summarises and promotes dialogue about the "state of the art" in theory and practice of crisis prevention and non-violence, peace consolidation and the civil management of inter-group conflicts. The Berghof Handbook is designed primarily for practitioners seeking ideas and information for their own work and wishing to draw on the wealth of experience amassed by their colleagues in a range of regions and contexts. It is also intended for experts in politics, research and journalism.
