ministry for peace is an organisation working for the creation of a Ministry for Peace within government, whose purpose will be to implement, in all areas of Italian government and society, the programme of action outlined in the 1999 UN Declaration on a Culture of Peace. This aims to create values, attitudes and behaviours that address the root causes of violence, with a view to solving problems through dialogue and negotiation among individuals, groups and nations.

Work through its questions with a problem in mind and it’s bound to make a difference. The process may inspire you to study the skills in more depth or remind you of a valuable tool that might have slipped off your list of useful strategies.
This Guide is a great way to introduce conflict resolution skills to others. They’re all there in a nutshell. Perhaps you might print out a few copies for your top drawer or waiting area at work. Get one up on a noticeboard or the fridge door.
