In this section you can find useful resources related to the youth work and conflict resolution, such as toolkits, reports and studies:

“To exist is to resist. Handbook for Volunteers to Palestine” is a toolkit  aimed at supporting the preparation process of International Volunteering Service volunteers who participate in Workcamps, Long Term Volunteering or European Voluntary Service projects in Palestine. It was created in 2018 by Servei Civil Internacional Catalunya with the support of the Agència Catalana de Cooperació al Desenvolupament, as a follow-up of a visit in Palestine. 

The “VICA (Volunteering In Conflict Areas) Toolkit” has been produced by the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS) during the VICA training course which was conducted online in 2021, with the support of the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe and the Erasmus+ programme and with the contribution of the participants, experts, trainers, graphic designers. This is a new version based on a previous manual which was published in 2008 by CCIVS and which needed to be updated according to the new scenarios and methods. The toolkit is addressed to volunteers and activists willing to experience volunteering in (post) conflict areas; to organisations, trainers, youth workers and educators interested in organising training, seminars and meetings on the topic of volunteering in conflict areas; and of course, to everybody interested in the topic of conflict management and reconciliation.
