Managing Conflict is something we all have to do in our own lives. We have all experienced conflict within our families and with work colleagues, usually over small matters, but sometimes over very serious ones. Sometimes we feel we have helped to settle the conflict: at other times we may feel we have made things worse. This issue of Footsteps tackles conflict within and between communities. As resources become scarce and life more difficult, so conflicts are likely to become more common. As Tom Houston of World Vision said, ‘The main problem in the world today is conflict and the greatest need is for reconciliation in these conflicts. There is no greater contributor to human suffering and no more significant barrier to effective development action than the violent conflicts that are tearing apart communities and societies throughout the world.’
