Tools to help describe, analyze, assess, and understand a conflict situation.

Peacemaking is difficult - Tools can help

  • In complex conflict situations, tools are needed to help describe, analyze, assess,and understand a conflict situation before attempting to "manage" that conflict.
  • Researchers havedeveloped a number of such tools often referred to as "Conflict Maps."
  • These "Conflict Mapping" tools can serve as a checklist to help us consider all the key facets of a conflict before proposing a "conflict invention" or peacemaking action plan.

One such tool has been adapted for use on the internet. Please try it and send us some feedback.
