P4DP’s TOC is rooted in PAR and posits that the ideas and solutions to the challenges faced by post-conflict societies, Liberia being no exception, need to be developed and owned by the societies themselves in order to bring effective remedy.
The methodology facilitates the development of inclusive solutions by the societies and creates a culture of dialogue that helps to improve the relations among –sometimes antagonistic- groups through repeated meetings, joint analysis of the challenges and design of solutions . The approach is also based on the assumption that such a process equips participants with listening and dialogue skills that will contribute to the peaceful management of conflicts and bring about peace and sustainable development.
The vision of P4DP is to see Liberia as a society that is characterized by equality, social cohesion and respect for all.
The mission of P4DP is to make Liberia become a society that is based on good governance and civic participation, through strengthening the capacities of the State and non-State actors in order to prevent, manage and transform conflict through collaborative action.
P4DP applies Participatory Action Research (PAR) methodology in all its works. Through this approach, P4DP endeavors to see a Liberian society that is characterized by equality, social cohesion and respect for all.
