Susan Collin Marks served on the Western Cape Peace Committee of the National Peace Accord during South Africa’s transition from apartheid. Her book, Watching the Wind: Conflict Resolution during South Africa's Transition to Democracy, captures the story of how an intransigent conflict was transformed by conflict resolution and peace-building that, for the first time ever, was implemented across a whole country through a National Peace Accord. For 20 years, she served as Vice President of Search for Common Ground.
