PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

As time is passing out people are becoming more conscious about their existence as human being in the society, what is their basic rights are, what is the ultimate consequences of violence’s / conflict  between each other and what is the benefit of peaceful life.
It is a matter of satisfaction and hope that percentage of Crime and violence is decreasing in my constituency Co’x Bazar District of Bangladesh where social, communal, political and conflict between migrant ( Myanmar ) and local people was the common scenario. According to our assumption two root causes are working behind the changes (1) Awareness building and social development activities by NGO’s and other Voluntary organizations (2) Law enforcing authorities of National Govt.(controversial).
Anyway we observed a bit progress  in the matter of social peace and nonviolence is concern.

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

Proper justice in proper times by the Local and National government (the good governance).
Poverty and lack of basic education
Social discrimination as far as Gender and Indigenous community is concern.
Right of land
Political influences of every ruling party in terms of social development and decision-making is concern

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

People must feel free for participating in the development of the society through their own will force and scope. But social barriers like Prejudices against Women, Cast, Religion and social justice create bottlenecks.

Human rights activities on child and women trafficking and awareness building
Microcredit program for the poor women in our constituency.
Yearly seminar and cultural program on Peace issue with Hiroshima Peace Cultural Foundation Japan.

ADVICE: What advice would you like to give to the Secretary-General and the General Assembly to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the second half of the Decade?

It is commonly recognized that where there is justice there is Peace closely linked  peace is the output of Justice.
In order to promote peace and nonviolence culture especially in developing countries is concern UN activities must be emphasized on poverty and illiteracy eradication.
As Global governess UN must act locally which enable UN for getting proper information on time from the various social developing agency, NGO’s, Voluntary and Civil society organization.
The fence (National Govt.) in between UN and local /national NGO’s should be removed.
Our appeal to the Secretary General to facilitate ICT facilities to the Local NGO’s of the developing countries under UN supervision.
