The Centre for Conflict Resolution developed this training manual as a practical resource for people involved in conflict resolution. The manual is oriented specifically around conflict resolution in Africa. There are two sections to the manual. The first section contains a number of articles written by various people. Topics include the following: development of the manual, with reference to "civil society" and Africa; case studies as a means of peace-building; an overview of the case studies in the manual; historical background of case analysis; strengths of the case study method; and guidelines for presenting case studies. The second section of the manual contains the ten case studies. Each study consists of the case itself, a background history to the case, and questions and teaching notes for the case presenter. A matrix at the end of the manual sorts and identifies the cases by conflict-related themes.
