Tools that help people to understand and analyse conflict, work effectively within a conflict setting, and help communities reduce violent conflict and build sustainable peace

Everybody experiences conflict at some level, from a small disagreement within a family through to full-scale war between two or more groups. A conflict analysis helps to increase our understanding of an existing or potential conflict.

This tool can help a group to recognise the tensions, disagreements and violence that may exist within their community or between their community and others, and form a deeper understanding of what might be preventing broken relationships from being restored. Equipped with this understanding, communities can start to address these issues.
