1.The Training of Trainers on Dialogue Project


The violent circumstances in the Southern border provinces arise from various

factors of which the dissimilarity on cultures, languages and religions may be the

causes of the misunderstanding, the dissension and the mistrust until becoming the

suspicion between the government officials and the people both the Buddhist  and

the Muslim.


The dialogue is a kind of learning to understand various dissimilarities. It can be used as as both “tool” and “means” in promoting “nonviolence” by which the leaders

of different backgrounds, after having “listened”, would enter into a new relationship and learn to understand each other better.



The Research Center for Peace Building, Mahidol University, realizing the importance of the distribution of the knowledge and the understanding on dialogue organized a pre-training of soldiers, police, government officials, student leaders, community leaders and religious leaders in order to develop their skills  and prepare them for the dialogue process. The subsequent dialogue was successfully conducted.


This project has another objective to train resource persons who would be enable to facilitate the dialogue process by themselves. The project out-put includes

the production of the manuals for the dialogue trainees and trainers and the use of the dialogue process to reduce the problems of violence in the Southern region.


The Training of Trainers on Dialogue Project has 2 parts :- the training activities and the production of the training manuals.


The training activities include

1. The lectures on the understanding about the process and the preparation prior to the


2.  The demonstration of the steps of the dialogue.

3.  The brain-storming to stimulate the participation in order to incorporate wider

     experiences and new points-of-view about the problem issues.

4.  The role-play in conflicting circumstances by acting as the

     perpetrators and the victims to learn how each party should perform in accordance

    to nonviolence.

5.  The practice of dialogue.


The activities in the production of the training manuals include

1.  The production of a training manual and training design and planning

     in the form of VCD.

2.  The production of a training manual and reading material in the form of book.


The expected outcome is human resource development in the field of dialogue that can be used to reduce conflicts through peaceful means.
