Balkan based NGO Transconflict (www.transconflict.org) is launching a Global Coalition for Conflict Transformation (GCCT). This initiative will bring together not for profit organisations who are committed to upholding and implementing certain Principles of Conflict Transformation (which can be found here http://www.transconflict.com/advocate/global-coalition-for-conflict-transformation/principles-of-conflict-transformation/)
The GCCT's mission is to raise awareness and understanding about conflict transformation, facilitate theoretical and policy oriented debate on conflict transformation, advocate for greater support for conflict transformation processes and catalyse the sharing of best practice between practitioners.
Ru'ya urges any NGO based in the East and/or Horn of Africa to consider applying to the Coalition; it is essential for NGOs in the region to share experiences with other conflict ridden regions, learn from the example of others and also promote awareness of the difficulties in the region. The GCCT provides an excellent forum for all these things.
