The war on terror in Afghanistan has raised awareness of the often divisive ethical decisions and tradeoffs local and international actors face in trying to establish peace and justice in conflict zones. In trouble spots across the globe today, from Northern Ireland to Sri Lanka, from Sierra Leone to Indonesia, human rights activists often have different perspectives and priorities than conflict resolution specialists and peace activists. Our Winter 2002 Human Rights Dialogue explores some of these tensions and offers suggestions for building more constructive relationships between the human rights and peace communities.
