Conflict Prevention, Management and Resolution

The  history  of  PAC  in  dialogue  processes  is  unique  as  it  captures  both experiences of  advocacy  and conflict management  depending  on  the emerging  issues in  the  country .  In 1992, it   advocated  for  political  and  economic  reforms  and  maintained  dialogue  with  Dr.  Banda’s  regime  through  Presidential  committee  on  Dialogue(PCD)  which  resulted  in  multiparty  system of government.  This  was  after it  took  a  clear-cut  position towards  political  change  in  Malawi. In  2003,  it  spearheaded  a  campaign  against  open and  third  term  constitutional  amendments. In  2007, PAC  maintained  dialogue  with  major  political  parties  on  S65  and  Budget.  In  2014  and  2019 ,  PAC  undertook  dialogue  facilitation  engaging Presidential  Candidates  through  the Signing  of  Peace Declarations . The latter formed  a  basis  for  dialogue  during  the  2014  and 2019  electoral  stalemates. In 2020, the organization undertook a  high-level dialogue  facilitation  on disputes  involving  Christians  and Muslims on dress code particularly  Hijab. Currently, PAC  has  a pool  of  insider  mediators  training  in dialogue  and  mediation  facilitation.
