From November 27 to December 8, 12 representatives from DIPD partners in Myanmar, Kenya, Swaziland and Tanzania participate in the Danida Fellowship Centre course in Dialogue and Conflict Transformation in Copenhagen.
The goal of the course is to strengthen the capacity of participants in resolving or transforming the conflicts, they face in order to contribute most effectively to development, good governance and peacebuilding in the context in which they work.
Already after the first day of training Mr. M. Shabangu from the Swaziland Democratic Party said: “I wish we in the democratic movement had had this training before we engaged in the Commonwealth initiated efforts to dialogue with the King of Swaziland. As you know these efforts did not succeed.”
The training is also needed in Tanzania. “Now during the by-elections in Tanzania there has been so much conflict and violence, which shows the need for dialogue and conflict prevention.” Ms. Doris Cornel Gillius, Chadema.
The essence of DIPD’s work revolves around strengthening political dialogue abroad and therefore we are very pleased, that our partners can participate in this course.
