The last USIP facilitated Training of Trainers workshop on conflict management was held in Islamabad from 20th April up to 22nd April 2013. More than 30 members of the Peacebuilders network of SPADO from Sindh, KPK and FATA attended the training.
The main focus of the training was to review the modules on dialogue, communication, negotiation and mediation skills, which the participants have learned and to provide a forum to the members coming from different regions of Pakistan in order to discuss the challenges and opportunities for sustaining the network and working collectively to promote non-violent dispute resolution in Pakistan.
The participants throughout the 3 days of the workshop remained engaged in learning and sharing through group work, presentations and sharing of ideas and inputs. Since the start of the initiative in 2009 the members of the network have resolved potentially violent conflicts in Pakistan and are committed to contribute towards promoting national harmony and transforming the nation from conflict to peace and stability.
