From Conflict to Peace Building

by Paul Connolly and Jacqueline Hayden with Diane Levin
ITEM #: 4000505
The Power of Early Childhood Initiatives
Lessons from Around the World

This book contains stories of hope and encouragement and of just what early childhood practitioners can do and achieve in the face of adversity. From Conflict to Peace Building shows us that it is possible to make a real difference in the lives of children and families in societies affected by conflict. Moreover, the stories illustrate the power of the early years sector, not only as a foundation stone upon which to re-build communities, but also as a vehicle for peace building because of it's ability to reach across political divides and to encourage the differing sides in conflict to develop alternative visions of the future based around the needs of children.

Contained are chapters from Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Chad, Colombia, Nepal, Northern Ireland, Palestine, and United States.
