Workshops on good practices in unarmed civilian protection (UCP) by Nonviolent Peaceforce

Since late 2017, the non-governmental organization Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) has been convening a series of regional workshops to strengthen all types of work of nonviolent protection of civilians in the midst of violent political conflicts. The facilitated 3-days workshops are based on the experiences of the participating practitioners and focus on learning from the various organizations and different contexts in which the participants work. The goal of the workshop series is to compile a collection of good practices both to improve existing field work and to help organizations starting in civilian protection. So far, workshops have been held in Asia (the Philippines), the Middle East (Lebanon) and Africa (Kenya). The next workshops are planned for South/Central America and North America/Europe. Since the beginning of 2018, greenstorming has been assisting NP with the workshop preparations pro bono.
