mediation books

For the past three years the Association for Conflict Resolution Hawaii Chapter and the Matsunaga Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution have partnered to display books in honor of Conflict Resolution Day.

Conflict Resolution Day is acknowledged annually on the third Thursday of October to promote awareness of mediation, arbitration, conciliation and other creative, peaceful means of resolving conflict. The displays are set up around that day and stay on display for at least two weeks.

The books will be displayed with proclamations from the Honolulu City Council, Mayor Kirk Caldwell, and Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie.

The range includes books on alternative dispute resolution, fieldbooks, practitioner training guides, and theoretical books that build on decades of scholarship in conflict resolution, leadership, collaborative dialogue and governance, and peace and nonviolence. The range of application is from a local level to a national and global scale.
