Conflict Analysis

This list of resources on Conflict Analysis are part of the larger Learning for Peace project which produced dozens of briefs, reports, case studies, guides, and research products, and compiled many other relevant resources related to the link between education and peacebuilding.

Peacebuilding happens when social services are leveraged in such a way that they contribute to the mitigation of drivers of conflict. Conflict drivers are usually determined through the implementation of conflict analysis research. This section contains conflict summaries from 14 conflict analysis studies. It also contains a lessons-learned analysis useful to education practitioners planning to participate in conflict analysis research in fragile and post-conflict societies.
