PEACE BUILDING

Centre for Human Rights & Governance’s aim is to protect communities in violent conflicts through unarmed strategies, build peace side by side with local communities, and advocate for the wider adoption of these approaches to safeguard human lives and dignity. It envisions a culture of peace in which conflicts within and between communities are managed through nonviolent means. We are guided by principles of nonviolence, non-partisanship, the primacy of local actors, and civilian-to-civilian action.

CHRG brings together parties to a conflict those who have acted, those directly impacted, and the wider community within an intentional systemic context, to dialogue as equals. Participants invite each other and attend voluntarily. The dialogue process used is shared openly with all participants, and guided by a community member. The process ends when actions have been found that bring mutual benefit.
