Participants' reactions to IPDTC programs

"The training was very relevant to me because it added additional knowledge and skills in Peacebuilding. The presentation by the trainer even made it easier to comprehend. The quality of support given during the program was very encouraging and satisfactory. The quality of methodology and content was well presented. More practical engagement of participants in group work enables me to quickly understand the concept."
Mr. Richelieu Wollor
Civil Affairs Officer
Unites Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL)

"IPDTC-PATRIR training programs are tremendously useful for a range of stakeholders in that they integrate critical thematic areas, offering new approaches for analysis and practice that serve the advancement of peacebuilding as a discipline and practice. The programs offer the full workshop experience (an increasing rarity these days), in ideal settings, with experienced practitioners coming from all regions which allows rich exchange, top trainers and a full cultural experience. I always encourage my colleagues to look into IPDTC-PATRIR programs, as I don't think it gets much better, and I urge you to continue!"
