This article presents a case study that addresses a community conflict
surrounding the issues of homelessness. The decision to use a Peace Circle
format, the manner in which it was implemented, including the
preparation and controls put in place, the actual process, the manner in
which local media was handled to the advantage of the process, and the
results and follow-up of the peace circle process when used in a large
scale forum are discussed. (author’s abstract)
