Workshop on Peace-building During and After Conflict
In overcoming conflict and violence, young people’s involvement in the process of peace is one of the main elements for establishing permanent peace. The workshop, which focused on the importance of working with the youth in the processes of peace-building, held on 16 October in Hrant Dink Foundation with the support of Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and facilitated by Martin McMullan from Youth Action Northern Ireland, who is a part of various initiatives involved in the peace-building processes in Europe and Africa.
In the workshop, McMullan told about his experience on conflict resolution and the participants shared their experiences of living in a polarized society in conflict. McMullan also invited the participants to think together for developing ways for including young people in reconciliation processes.
