Say Peace - Islamic Perspectives on Conflict Resolution Manual for Muslim Communities

The Salam Institute for Peace and Justice based in Washington D.C. has released a new resource that looks really interesting. The 150+ page training manual is entitled “Say Peace…” Islamic Perspectives on Conflict Resolution Manual for Muslim Communities.

The “…Say Peace” manual was developed specifically to help Muslim communities translate their understanding of Islam as peace into practical knowledge and skills that can help them transform how they operate within conflict and help others around them in transforming conflict situations. Grounded in an Islamic worldview, and with an understanding of the diversity of Muslim communities, the manual brings together Islamic sources of peacebuilding and conflict resolution with experience and methods from the larger multidisciplinary field of conflict analysis and resolution into a training resource that strives to be relevant to daily life.

As the Institute website page for the resource explains, the “…Say Peace” manual developed gradually over a period of years through the interaction of graduate students and faculty, under the leadership of Salam’s Dr. Amr Abdallah.  The project was originally developed within the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences.  Since its production, the manual has been used in trainings for Muslim communities internationally, as well as for participants of other backgrounds working within Muslim communities or who had an interfaith interest in understanding more about Islamic approaches to peacemaking.
