The Cambodian Center for Conflict Resolution is to host a three day workshop

18-20 Feb to look at Buddhist concepts and techniques for building peace in Cambodia.

The workshop aims to examine the usefulness and effectiveness of traditional religious

"Mindful Meditation: A Buddhist Manual for Conflict resolution" by Dr John

McConnell, which has just been translated into Khmer.

The Center said that the book provided a practical training manual for Cambodian

conflict resolution practitioners.
