An indispensable source…
If Accord did not exist already it would have to be invented!
Over the past 18 years Accord has been an essential part of Conciliation Resources' work and has provided an invaluable resource to peacebuilders, policymakers and others working to end violent conflict. The series aims to inform and strengthen peace processes globally by documenting, analysing and sharing practical lessons and innovations of peacebuilding.
Accord's value comes from the diversity of experience and expertise of its authors. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to access this wealth of peace wisdom – around the world and on the move. I hope these e-books mean more people can learn as much from Accord about the business of building peace as I have.
