CHIVASA, Norman  e  HARRIS, Geoff. Enhancing Social Interventions by Informal Peace Committees in Zimbabwe: A Developmental Social Work Perspective. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2019, vol.55, n.2, pp.130-140. ISSN 2312-7198.

Informal peace committees are community-based responsive and supportive mechanisms that deal with social issues such as interpersonal conflicts, small-scale violence, poverty, hunger and social injustice. As human-service-oriented structures designed and created to represent the interests of local people, informal peace committees have an often unseen correlation with developmental social work in tackling social issues in their host communities in Zimbabwe. This article, therefore, argues that developmental social workers should become involved in these peace committees and identify the contributions they can make as a profession in order to enhance these successful initiatives

Palavras-chave : informal peace committees; peace; Social Work; community-based mechanisms; developmental social work perspective; human service oriented structures.
