The site encourages further thinking and discussion on how humanitarian, development and business operations - on the project, national and international level - interact with conflict .
Highlighting new relevant publications, the site also hosts an extensive searchable library of conflict-related literature and resources for practitioners. The site focuses on both development and private sector activities and has resources on locating appropriate training courses. The more innovative aspects of the site are the forum, which allows discussion of a variety of issues, and the 'Guest Lecture' series. This bi-monthly feature invites leaders in conflict prevention to respond to questions posed by registered users. The current Great Lecturer is Per Egil Wam, Senior Social Scientist with the World Bank\'s Conflict Prevention and Reconstruction Unit. Registration is free.
