About AMAN: AMAN envisages a pro-active role for civil society in the reduction of conflict and the mitigation of its effects. Its philosophy is based on the concepts of ahimsa and samrastha (non – violence and harmony).

In the area of non – governmental civic initiatives, the rationale for AMAN arises from a recognition that man – made disasters must be added to those caused by natural calamity. While relief is imperative in the aftermath of a disaster, a purely reactive approach is insufficient, even in the context of natural disasters. All of Aman’s networking, sensitisation, research and legal aid programmes aim at strengthening social institutions and resources for the anticipation and prevention of conflict, and at non-violent conflict resolution.
