National Peace Conference (NPC)

After many years of unrest in the Philippines, the overthrow of the Marcos regime by a "bloodless revolution" brought the hope of peace. A broadly based citizen's movement was mobilised and a participatory peace process was begun with the convening of the first National Peace Conference in October, 1990. The 1990 conference was a ground-breaking effort that served to forge a broad-based consensus among the representatives of seventeen sectors of Philippine society -- including the basic sectors, the academe, business, and the churches/faith groups -- on a national vision and agenda for peace. The NPC focused on the issues of social justice, the peace process, human rights, political governance, sovereignty, environment, socio-cultural transformation and moral renewal. To strengthen its position in pushing the peace agenda, the NPC decided in May, 1993 to reconstitute itself with a more structured membership base under the leadership of a governing council with representatives elected from the different participating sectors. Today it is a non-partisan multi-sectoral citizen's assembly. The active core of the NPC membership includes organisations and coalitions coming from the basic sectors of: farmers, fisherfolk, urban poor, formal and informal labour, indigenous peoples, women, persons with disability, youth, and students. The NPC sees its primary mission to be the pursuit of its Basic Peace Agenda. The Basic Peace Agenda is drawn from the deepest aspirations of the various sectors and formulated as government "doables" on the levels of immediate executive and legislative imperatives as well as of longer term policy directions. It undertakes direct advocacy of these agenda with government, while at the same time leading and sustaining the critical participation of the basic sectors in the 1993 Social Pact for Empowered Economic Development (SPEED) and the recently launched Social Reform Agenda (SRA). The NPC supports peace talks between government and armed opposition groups. They also advocate active citizens' participation in the peace process, insisting that the people's peace agenda must be the focus of any viable and sustainable peace plan.

Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution

The Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution was launched in 2004, and was one of the first centres for peace and conflict studies to be established at an Indian university. It aims to fill a strange gap in Indian academic life – the lack of serious and purposeful analysis of types and sources of conflict, and the methods of dealing with them that India has adopted. There is a wealth of Indian literature on war-making and peace settlements through the ages – indeed the Bhagavad Gita might be the first discourse on just and unjust wars to be written – but it has not yet been collated or analyzed from a doctrinal point of view. There is also a substantive body of more recent Indian field experience in strategies of conflict resolution, from the very successful non-violent movement for independence to fifty years of peacekeeping under the United Nations. And there is a repertoire of domestic experience in conflict resolution post-independence, from dealing with self-determination aspirations through the creation of linguistic and normative states, to establishing local and civic mechanisms for dispute redressal. This experience too is under-researched, both in India and abroad.

New Era

New ERA, one of the first non-governmental research institution in Nepal, founded by a group of Peace Corps Volunteers and Nepalese educators to provide research support for the implementation of the Nepal Education System Plan, 1971. Thoroughly committed to the goal of helping assure the highest possible standard of education for Nepal, New ERA as a matter of policy adopted two strategies. First, it aimed to develop itself as an independent educational research and development institution. Second, it aimed to serve as a support agency to technical assistance programs and foreign scholars. Notwithstanding its critical exclusive focus on education, the scope of New ERA's research activities quickly broadened to include other aspects of national development. By mid-1970s, New ERA was involved in projects concerning rural and human resources development, communications and women development. Later half of the 1970s saw New ERA engaged in training (language and culture) for foreign technical and volunteer agencies such as the American Peace Corps and in the implementation of Semester Abroad Program for American college students. In early 1980s New ERA's activities expanded to newer fields like agriculture, livestock, horticulture, communications, drinking water and sanitation, forestry, environment, gender issues, human resources, migration and resettlement, population and family planning, health and nutrition, rural development and technology, socio-economics and tourism. In the beginning New ERA's projects were designed, negotiated and carried out jointly by the Nepalese and Americans. As New ERA got more organized with Nepalese attaining Capabilities of directing the activities, expatriate participation was gradually phased out. It eventually ended in 1977. Although New ERA was run entirely by a team of Nepalese professionals, it was only in 1981 that it became a Nepalese organization in the real sense of the term.
