Faith-based Interventions in Peace, Conflict and Violence: A Scoping Study

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Drawing on more than 70 case studies this scoping paper explores the interventions of faith-based organisations and local faith communities in peace, conflict and violence. It highlights the complex and ambivalent relationship between religion and violence, in all of its forms, and the important but under-recognised contributions faith-based actors make in contexts in or emerging from conflict.
