When Spider Webs Unite They Can Tie Up a Lion (A Treasure Trove of Ideas and Exercises for Spinning a Web of Enhanced Relationships)

When Spider Webs Unite They Can Tie Up a Lion (A Treasure Trove of Ideas and Exercises for Spinning a Web of Enhanced Relationships)

Between 2011 and 2013 the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) and Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) collaborated to conceive and implement a learning series, entitled "Spinning the Web: Exploring the Nexus between Human Rights and Conflict Transformation". This was born out of the identified need for human rights activists and lawyers to develop or deepen their facilitation skills to meet the needs of a changing socio-political environment. This paper contains a selection of the important substantive concepts and theoretical underpinnings of the Learning Series. The conceptual theme in this paper is forging relationships for the sake of creating social change and/or building a mass movement.
