The search to find new and more effective ways of resolving internal conflicts is a major preoccupation in today's world. The massive toll that modern wars have taken on civilian populations has given great urgency to this search.The violence done to the population through terror, the destruction of personal property, physical injury and the loss of loved ones all point to the urgent need to build peace in our world. New and innovative approaches to humanitarian intervention and conflict resolution must be developed. New roles and tasks have emerged for international organizations such as the United Nations and OSCE. At the same time, civil society organizations have increasingly played an important role in conflict resolution through "second-track" or citizens' diplomacy, conflict sensitive approaches to development, as well as third party nonviolent intervention.<br /><br />
