- Increased inter and intra community relations through enhanced understanding of conflict, reconciliation and post-conflict transition in the training packages delivered (OCR Level 2 and 3) and individual and organisational engagement and linkages at the individual, local, regional and cross-border levels.
- Increase in numbers of women involved in decision making processes, through personal development, confidence building and political awareness training, as well as access linkages through regional and local networks, with mentoring through the engagement process.
- Reduced community tensions through greater understanding of the dimensions of conflict and mechanisms for reconciliation through OCR training packages, greater mutual understanding through inter-community contact, enhanced opportunity to resolve community tensions through more established inter-community networks though linking RPMAs and local groups and the increased awareness of previously unheard voices on equality issues though the empowerment of women to participate in decision-making processes.
- Ownership of shared communities, changes in attitudes towards cross-community and cross-border activities through women engaging with local consultation and planning processes for shared spaces, mutual under-standing through OCR training and cross-community contact and increased cross-border engagement through cross-border linkages and relationships.
The ultimate impact of the project will be on several levels:
- Women per year will have gained the skills, knowledge, qualifications and confidence to engage meaningfully in the development of a shared future for the island of Ireland
- The Regional Project Management Agencies (RPMAs) will be empowered and developed as conduits for and sites of innovative community relations and reconciliation activities
- Sustainable regional clusters would have been established and maintained on a cross-community and cross-border basis as a network for developing a shared vision of a shared island through meaningful relationships
- The issue of gender in post-conflict transition will have been highlighted and practical mechanisms to realise women’s participation demonstrated
