Women in Security, Conflict Management and Peace (WISCOMP) jointly with the National Peace Council from Sri Lanka, organized a workshop that brought together Naga Peace activists and social scientists and their Sri Lankan counterparts, to encourage peace-making skills through a programme of dialogues. This was the first of the series of dialogues. Women came together to share their experiences in waging peace in their conflict regions, discuss their contributions in furthering peace processes in situations of protracted conflict, and also to suggest ways for feminizing national security concerns. Also, they supported and encouraged the organization of more dialogues and workshops to help them initiate networks for peace in South Asia.
