The ICR Foundation would like to provide a brief update on the ongoing “Conflict Transformation Conference” in Berlin, organised by the Bangladesh Forum Germany [BFG]. Miss Ajanta Deb Roy, one of the ICRF’s most talented members participated in this seminar. Ms Roy has featured prominently throughout the duration of the conference. She has also had the opportunity to express. Amongst various others topics, she stressed the importance of Conflict Transformation and the new avenues that they might open up on the road to resolving social and cultural injustices. There were other notable individuals who participated in the conference.
By organizing this conference, BFG requested civil society actors from Bangladesh to facilitate a joint learning process of civil society actors from Bangladesh and Germany along with representatives of the Government of Bangladesh, German government and EU with experienced actors in conflict transformation from other regions of this world.
The conference aimed at providing a space for participants to perceive conflicts differently by identifying and understanding main driving forces of conflicts and learning about approaches to transform these in constructive non-violent ways
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Roy of her stellar work in Berlin so far. Ms Roy of course currently volunteers as Planning, Strategy & Int’l relation department within the ICRF.
Stay tuned for more updates from Berlin as the ICRFoundation continues to fight for human rights.
