The United States is at the forefront in developing techniques and strategies to prevent,reduce, or resolve conflict, whether among nations, groups, or individuals. Knowngenerally as conflict resolution, these efforts by the U.S. and other U.N. member stateshave their roots in the United Nations Charter and have gained growing recognition andsupport since the end of the Cold War.The U.S. government’s wide-ranging initiatives in this field include mediating regionalconflicts, promoting democracy and human rights around the world, and strengtheningthe institutions that provide the basis for global peace and prosperity. A host of nongovernmental organizations assist in these efforts by bringing together conflictingparties, out of public view, to further mutual understanding and develop creative solutions.This issue of
