Short summary:
In the action plan defined by the General Assembly of CCIVS in Kenya 2004, it was decided that one of the project areas to be given high priority during 2005-2007, should be "conflicts and emergencies". One of the activities decided upon was to update the existing publication "Volunteering in Conflict Areas", published in 1997, which contains theories and reflection on ("macro-") conflicts in general, as well as examples of IVS projects taking place in zones of conflict. Since then CCIVS has also identified the need to widen the understanding of "conflict" to include smaller scale ("micro-") conflict e.g. between individuals or within organisations.
