In frames of the project: “Early Prevention of the Conflict - Theory and Practice”, 200 beneficiaries were interviewed in Kutaisi, Tskaltubo and Khurcha-Koki (Zugdidi Municipality). It turns out that the data obtained in three municipalities are different. Accordingly, the reasons of conflict differ from each other. As a result of the questionnaire analysis, it will be possible to solve concrete crisis situations.
- What was the reason of conflict? Who are the interested parties? In whose interests is the solution of the problem? What are the resources and alternatives for their solution? - using these methods, conflict situations were analyzed, identification of which was held through a questionnaire.
In April, three situations on conflict sensitivity were analyzed. It turned out that the causes of the conflict are very difficult. But there is always a way out, which can reduce the risk of its development.
Conflict situations are different: illegal agreements on the harvest of nuts or feijoa, cattle, which creates a danger for street residents, illegal buildings etc.
These information will help Women initiative groups, to use alternative versions of conflict resolution, identified during the analysis of specific situations in practice.
The obtained data identified conflict situations. Out of the identified problems, three crisis situations were chosen, and an analysis of conflict sensitivity was made.
Analysis of the conflict gives an opportunity to identify the object of the conflict, the opposing sides, their interests, the factors of conflict development and, on the basis of reality, the alternative versions of the solution of problems.
Analysis of conflict situations will give the women's initiative groups of Kutaisi, Tskaltubo and Zugdidi an opportunity to draw up an advocacy plan and effectively work on the early prevention of the conflict.
In order to identify conflict and crisis situations, women's initiative groups conducted questionnaires in Kutaisi, Tskaltubo and in the villages of Zugdidi municipality: Khurcha and Koki. Totally 90 women were surveyed from 18 to 68 years old. Questionnaire showed that that in these communities social conflicts caused by the unorganized infrastructure are especially actual.
The reasons of conflict are following: decrease of social status, controversial contracts, oral proposals.
As for the question, how do they react during the conflict in the communities? the answers showed that they often look for a way out, or address lawyers, non-governmental organizations, journalists.
As a result of the questionnaire analysis, 5 problems were identified. Members of the Women's Initiative Group will be included in the process to prevent conflict.
