the concept of democracy and discrimination against women in
the labor sector. The seminar involved local authorities and
traditional leaders, as well as local associations and
economic actors. Following the seminar, a series of
theatrical pieces were performed for 16 local communities
carried out by the &Grupo de Teatro e Danca Tradicional8.

invited to discuss and debate human rights issues. There was
strong community participation and the NGO itself expressed a
general satisfaction with its accomplishment.

five days and focused on the following topic: &Management,
Resolution and Mediations of Community Conflicts8. Speakers
analyzed different aspects of conflicts emphasizing in
particular how to prevent, manage and resolve them. The
purpose was to improve the judges, capabilities to negotiate
and mediate disputes by promoting a process of peaceful
resolution. The last day,s discussion also covered the law
that regulates the local tribunals and its effective
application. At the end of the seminar many of the community
judges stated that the information they received was very
useful and will help them in the process of hearing,
analyzing and judging different community cases.
