YOUNG WOMENS LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP

By Armine Zakaryan | Project coordinator

Peace Dialogue NGO organized a three-day workshop entitled Young Womens Leadership Workshop from August 15 -17. It was aimed at capacity building in human rights, democracy and peaceful settlement of the conflicts for young women and girls who are involved in civic activism in different cities and villages of Armenia. A number of young women and girls from Lori, Shirak, and Tavush regions participated in the workshop.

During the workshop the participants were given an opportunity to observe the interconnections between different social phenomena based on their own experience, as well as the influence of such phenomena on different political and civic processes. The participants were introduced to the concepts of “violence” and “conflict”. They tried to observe the role of democracy in the processes of peaceful resolution of conflicts.

Through different activities the participants talked about identities and about numerous phenomena that have influence on these identities.

Moreover, on their own examples, as well as on staged examples, the participants tried to analyze and understand the needs and the fears behind the behaviors of the parties involved in the conflict.

n addition to providing theoretical knowledge and tools to the participants, the organizers also aimed at creating a platform for the participant to learn from each other by sharing their experience and lessons learned in numerous spheres.

At the end of the workshop, referring to the content of the program, many of the participants mentioned that, aside from the knowledge gained from the workshop topics, it was particularly noteworthy that certain concepts, such as peace building, gender and identity were interpreted from alternative perspective.
