Description/Summary

Breaking Cycles of Violence studies how the international community, working with local partners, can effectively pinpoint key breaking points and target resources for societies at risk of violent conflict. Provides policymakers, practitioners, scholars, and students with a framework for recognizing and tackling the complexities of internal and intrastate conflicts in order to avert violence and mass human suffering. It presents guidelines for using early warning indicators to assess the causes of conflict; using preventative action to contain it; and using multidimensional strategies to rehabilitate societies through the cycle of post-conflict peacebuilding. – Publisher description
