Notes / about is an independent platform which aims to contribute to discussion on positive approaches to addressing conflicts / disputed issues.

The website carries ideas, theory & information about good practice in conflict resolution; articles, insights, news; & book reviews / short book notes.

Our latest review discusses Peter T Coleman’s new book, which sets out many effective approaches to handling disputed issues, but also evidences some ‘limits and evasions’ often found in conflict resolution work.

We hope to be of use & interest to mediators / other practitioners working to improve relationships between individuals & within society; those involved in conversations, dialogue, debates / discussions on ‘difficult’ & ‘controversial’ subjects; researchers looking at contested issues & social distances; leaders & activists in communities, politics, business, local government & the voluntary sector.
