Talk for a Change and Peaceful Change Initiative (PCI) collaborate in Libya
Talk for a Change is currently collaborating with Peaceful Change Initiative (PCI) on a project aimed at improving human security and local development in Libya.
Our work is an on-going partnership, rooted in our shared commitment to peace building and strengthening social cohesion. Having previously worked at the local level in Sirte and Bane Wallid, for my second visit I worked with the Ministry of Local Governance in Tripoli, providing strategic planning expertise for ‘conflict sensitive development’ in Libya.
We delivered workshops for representatives from different ministerial departments, aiming to support them to develop strategies that would improve relationships between communities and local authority representatives, whilst also getting them to think about how they could strengthen relationships between different community groups
Again I was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of civil society and government leaders that I worked with to pursue a vision based on trust, commonality and visible social justice.
I am also looking forward to attending the Libya Working Group discussion hosted by the Chatham House Middle East and North Africa Programme in partnership with the Peaceful Change initiative later this month. Watch this space……………
