In 2010, Irénées and Modus Operandi have initiated the development of a diverse set of analytical tools that have proved useful in understanding conflict as a step towards undertaking action.
Ten organizations worldwide, each with an impressive record in conflict transformation have been asked to reflect on their practices and to develop one analytical tool that is at the heart of their work. For certain organizations this has been an opportunity to schematically represent their approach, allowing them to document and share it with other actors in the field of peace-building and conflict transformation.
The development of analytical tools corresponds to the following objectives:
These tools are free of use for any person or organization that works with conflict. We would like to ask in return to be informed about their application to other conflict contexts.
For an overview of all this tools, we provide a transversal analysis.
Understanding the sources of tension and the local capacities for peace.
An Integrated Framework for Humanitarian Assistance, Development and Peacebuilding.
Steps for balanced negotiation in asymmetrical socio-economic conflicts between big businesses and local populations.
A tool for the analysis of the strategies required for comprehensive peacebuilding based on the understanding of conflicts and the relationships between the involved actors.
Four level model of conflict
A Framework for Transforming Resource-Based Conflicts.
This tool allows us to identify our own position and where we stand in a conflict situation that can range from the interpersonal, intergroup, social, of collective resistance or even intercultural conflict. It should be applicable in all types of conflict situation by the actors of the conflict in order to find the path for the ‘constructive transformation’ of the situation that is at the root of the suffering.
A tool to facilitate forgiveness by helping victims of violent conflict begin a process of personal healing.
