3. The Oxford Research Group book quotes stories from Initiatives of Change. War Prevention Works – 50 stories of people resolving conflict, by Dylan Mathews, first published in September 2001, presents ‘short accounts from all over the world of what ordinary people are doing to stop war and killing – armed only with integrity, stamina and courage’. From community level violence to inter state wars and from 1946 to the present day, these easy-to-read true stories highlight the tools and techniques used by ordinary people, non-governmental organisations, church groups and many others to help resolve conflicts around the world. It gives three case-studies drawn from the work of Initiatives of Change/Moral Re-Armament – the only group cited three times. Online table of Contents
