Conciliation involves working with people who have used violence to achieve their goals. It means gaining a deeper understanding of their aims, while maintaining a strong moral but neutral position. Subtitled “Experiences of International Conciliation for a New Generation of Peacemakers,” this book follows an inspiring conference in September 2019, at which experienced conciliators and younger peace activists came together to share learning and consider how to take the work forward with renewed energy.

Author Anne Bennett has broad experience in conciliation, developing peacemaking programs in areas of violent conflict before working in Lebanon and Belfast.
