With the same diligent preparations that have gone into waging war, peacebuilders are now using strategic planning to build the architecture for peaceful and justice communities and societies. Lisa Schirch sets forth clear and incisive strategies for pursuing a just peace – a peace with justice – including long-term planning, working at all levels of society, careful decision-making, and coordinating different actors and approaches to peacebuilding. Based on the work of Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, this Little book links diverse approaches to peacebuilding – advocacy and activism, peacekeeping, humanitarian assistance, development, trauma healing, conflict transformation, and restorative justice. This handbook and toolkit captures the complexity of the tasks, while providing a comprehensible decision-making and planning guide. (publisher’s description)
