Community based rehabilitation

Have not got to this yet, but it looks interesting: "Community based rehabilitation: a strategy for peace-building by William Boyce, Michael Koros and Jennifer Hodgson". The blurb on it reads: "Certain features of peace-building distinguish it from peacekeeping, and make it an appropriate strategy in dealing with vertical conflict and low intensity conflict. However, some theorists suggest that attempts, through peace-building, to impose liberal values upon non-democratic cultures are misguided and lack an ethical basis. We have been investigating the peace-building properties of community based approaches to disability in a number of countries. This paper describes the practice and impact of peace-building through Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) strategies in the context of armed conflict".
