Rights in Conflict is an encyclopaedia of work documenting the challenges and opportunities of working on rights in conflict contexts. It will be useful for policy makers and practioners alike. Readers can dip into the different chapters to glean knowledge and information on effective practice. The introduction section provides a useful overview on the key concepts in the field of rights and conflict. The last chapter pulls together the different threads of argument. It highlights how rights based approaches can add value in conflict contexts and conversely, how conflict sensitive approaches can add value to rights based approaches. While it outlines the conceptual, operational and organisational challenges of working in these areas, it ends positively, and emphasises steps that can be taken to ensure that work is effective.
