Volunteers Against Conflict
Edited by United Nations Volunteers

This volume is the result of collaboration between United Nations Volunteers (UNV) and the Humanitarianism and War project of the Thomas J. Watson Jr. Institute for International Studies, Brown University, USA. It is the expression of the substantial involvement of UNV in UN peace-keeping and humanitarian operations. Its purpose is to convey a better understanding of the work of UN volunteers in conflict situations. This book, the first of its kind, brings together the experiences of individual UN volunteer specialists who served in a wide range of recent UN missions. This ground's-eyeview of some of the most ambitious and important UN initiatives is a collection of firsthand accounts written by the volunteers themselves.
