Presenting surveys of the violent conflicts in Europe, the Caucasus, and Central Asia, the contributors offer a combination of background information, detailed descriptions of ongoing activities, and assessments of future prospects for conflict resolution and peacebuilding. A major focus of their work is the efforts of regional organizations and NGOs to make civil society part of any peace process, and they thoroughly cover the activities of grassroots groups. A directory of more than 400 organizations working in the field of conflict prevention and peacebuilding in the region is also included. More than 40 experts and organizations in Europe and Eurasia have collaborated in the compilation of this important work, which includes contributions by such prominent scholars and practitioners as Mari Fitzduff, Michael S. Lund, Valery Tishkov, Raymond Detrez, and Kevin Clements. The work was coordinated by the European Centre for Conflict Prevention, an NGO dedicated to contributing to the prevention and resolution of violent conflicts in the international arena.
