From Project: Strengthening Dialogue for Community Decision-Making
The project activities – raising awareness about human rights, organizing community debates and producing broadcasts – contributed the local democratization agenda, and complemented the gradual reestablishment of a stable and democratic situation in Ituri District. In particular, the project helped to reach remote communities; increase women’s awareness of their rights; and in some communities the project helped address security concerns, including the use of violence by police and military personnel against civilians.
