Between Peace and War tells the stories of Canadians who are working internationally to reduce armed conflict. Employing mediation and negotiation, as well as innovative community initiatives, they are part of a new generation of frontline civilian peace-workers who are trying to reduce the deadly cycles of violence around the world. The film explores their vision, their motivation, their successes and their failures, as we travel with them to fragile states. Their work is portrayed in the context of Canada’s historic role as a major contributor to UN-mandated military peacekeeping missions – a role which has been significantly reduced in the last 20 years.
