Karuna Center led a series of peace leadership seminars with Georgian women leaders. In addition to addressing issues of safety and empowerment, these built sensitivity toward the needs and fears of ethnic minorities in breakaway regions.

Peacebuilding for Women Leaders (2003)

Karuna Center led a series of peacebuilding seminars for women leaders from Georgian NGOs. Our seminar participants understood the necessity of developing a more peaceful and democratic society, but many found the concepts of peacebuilding new and unfamiliar. In addition to addressing the issues of safety and empowerment of particular concern to the women, we worked to build sensitivity toward the needs and fears of those in the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which will be essential if Georgians are to build a functioning multi-ethnic society.
