The Alchemy of Peacebuilding:

Last year, many participants at the Dubrovnik Conference asked for a list of books that would help them prepare for co-creating the conference and realizing the goals we have set. Although we will update the list between now and the conference, this list is not meant to be an extensive bibliography. These are a few recommendations that have been suggested by our program committee. Please send you recommendations too!


At the top of the list are books by our speakers. The most relevant titles are listed below, but you may also wish to read other books by these authors. Suggested books for the Dubrovnik Conference:
