A Recap of the Conflict Transformation Training-of-Trainers May 21-25, 2012
When was the last time that you let someone lead you around a room with your eyes closed? It may have been a while, but if you’re a peace practitioner, you’ve likely participated in a similar exercise meant to encourage trust-building and show the importance of good communication and leadership.

A baseline study was conducted in all seven communities.
The goal of the baseline was to collect data that would provide insight into the conflict dynamics of each community.
The baseline was conducted using an integrated -methods approach including 1523 baseline surveys, 23 focus group discussions (FGDs), and 19 key information interviews (KIIs).
