THEME: The Nonviolent Tools of Peace Teams
When invited by local communities, MPT Peace Teams bring the tools of Third Party Nonviolent Intervention (TPNI) to situations of armed conflict and to situations of potential violence. The immediate TPNI goal is to reduce violence and keep people out of harm's way. Another is to create the safe space that local or societal nonviolent social change movements need for creative problem solving, and for taking nonviolent action in the direction of their hopes and dreams. This edition explains Third Party Nonviolent Intervention, and describes concrete TPNI experiences.
