Data collected from the baseline study shall illustrate the perceptions, attitudes, familiarity and extent of knowledge of young girls, boys and political leaders about the conflict dynamics in KP and FATA. It will also help investigate the ways in which youth and political leaders organize and mobilize their own generation in search of solutions, while the stable government, economic growth, or basic material and physical security are missing. This will also bring to fore the perception of youth and political leaders about each others’ role for peace dialogue and conflict transformation. Moreover, it will help understand the perception of political leaders about economic and social democracy that is useful to resolve problems on ground by devolving the power to the population at large while working with and for them. It will further help SFCG in developing and implementing informed programs for peace building.
