Introducing the The Peacemaker’s Toolkit, a new series of handbooks for practitioners and educators about the art of mediation.

On May 4, 2010, the United States Institute of Peace will hold a public workshop to launch The Peacemaker’s Toolkit. Each handbook focuses on a particular facet of the mediator’s trade, distilling practical guidance from a wealth of experience and expertise. Slim enough to fit into a pocket but packed with ideas, options, and examples, the handbooks lay out the key steps to success.
Five handbooks have now been published, and several more will be appearing in coming months. All are available online and in print, and all are free.

The May 4 workshop will feature the authors of “Working with Groups of Friends,” “Timing Mediation Initiatives,” and “Integrating Internal Displacement in Peace Processes and Agreements.” Other available title include “Managing a Mediation Process,” “Debriefing Mediators,” and “Managing Public Information in a Mediation Process.”
Free copies of all five of the published handbooks will be given to those who attend the workshop. Electronic copies of the books are also available by clicking the links above or by visiting
