We made Reconciliations Happen | Stories from the Panguna Dialogue Project

This book describes the work carried out by the Panguna Dialogue Project (PDP) in the Central Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea. Over the last decade and a half, peacebuilding on Bougainville has come a long way. After the devastations of the crisis years in the 1990s, Bougainville peacebuilding is widely acknowledged as a success story all over the world. PDP created an alliance of peacebuilders at village level in the political constituencies of Eivo-Torau, Ioro and Bolave in Bougainville, the area where the Panguna mine is located.
The stories in this book were collected by the PDP team after facilitating community dialogues in Ioro, Bolave and Eivo-Torau in October 2015, March 2016, July 2016 and August 2016. They are stories of strength and stories of change from the communities that engaged with PDP. In addition to the communities that participated in the dialogues, the PDP team also met and shared stories with the Meekamui of Panguna. These stories also included in the book.
