This report documents the workshop: “Good Practices in Nonviolent, Unarmed, Civilian to Civilian Protection”, sponsored by the Australian International Development Fund Direct Aid Program, held in Manila between the 7th and 9th of December, 2017. Participants, practitioners and scholars came from the Philippines, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Nepal, Indonesia, Australia and Myanmar, representing various national and international organizations, among them inter alia Peace Brigades International, Bantay Ceasefire, Deep South Watch Thailand and Nonviolent Peaceforce. This is the first of five planned regional workshops. The workshops follow-on from stage one of the good practices process, a case studies research project which concluded in 2016. For the case studies, a team of researchers conducted an exploration of good practices for UCP in four countries/regions: South Sudan, Colombia, the Philippines (Mindanao) and Israel/Palestine. Their findings were published in the book, “Wielding Nonviolence in the Midst of Violence“ (2016), edited by Ellen Furnari.
