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

mechanisms for dealing with conflict. The workshop will also draw on a new publication

"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.
