This forum will include case studies from Afghanistan, Palestine, and Timor Leste as well. The Regional Forum is comprised of several activities which seek to allow women to build confidence in mediation by learning from one another in non-formal, non-structured ways, and to change the dynamics of conflict mediation which has been mainly dominated by patriarchal frameworks and practices. The forum will consolidate and promote the sharing of experiences, knowledge, and know-how among women, particularly women in Southeast Asia. Furthermore, this regional forum offers an opportunity for women in Southeast Asia to learn what it means to be a negotiator or mediator in a conflict zone.
