Downloaded 12 July 2003.This is the seventh case study in the series Holding These Truths: Empowerment and Recognition in Action. This series presents case studies for a future con ict resolution textbook. It has been successfully piloted with several international classes. Those, who benet most, stress the importance of carefully studying the introduction. (See Introduction to Con ict Case Studies, Nancy D. Erbe). Because the case study format is intentionally unique, written in an interactive and non-linear workbook style, unlike many introductions, the information provided there is required for understanding the case studies. Readers are encouraged to send comments and critiques directly to the author. Because of the deliberate one-of-a-kind format of the text, detailed page-by-page comments and questions are welcome. A list of the entire series is included below.
