Research monograph addressing victims’ voices in Northern Ireland, South Africa and Sri Lanka. Gives direct voice to the mostly voiceless victims of conflict, and argues they have a capacity for peacebuilding that requires us to mainstream victims not side-stream them, and causes us to rethink what peacebuilding is and the skills it requires.

Edited Collection with contributions on Northern Ireland (3), South Africa (1), Sri Lanka (2), Sierra Leone (1) and Colombia (1).
