But it is not specific to Rwandans, participation is also open to the Congolese, who were also affected by the conflict in Rwanda. It is for all citizens of Africa, Central Europe and North America, where many Congolese and Rwandan refugees live, and concerned in any way by the Rwandan crisis and of its consequences.

This initiative is based on principles of freedom of opinion, expression and respect for the evaluation / votes and comments of others. Confidentiality is also provided for those, in any case, who want to preserve it. It is also based on the principles of non-violence, dialogue and conflict resolution, control of humanity, especially the very central principles of the Nobel Peace Martin Luther King Jr. in which the initiative believe.

What is the delibera / DIR:
The "delibera" is a system that collectively weigh advantages and disadvantages (for debate) as a group on any subject under discussion. Use of icons allows simple visual representation of the position of each person and evaluation.

Delibera, as an integrated system for participation: it is composed of a set of methods, procedures and tools that facilitate dialogue and deliberation in real meetings and web forums. It's a great way to facilitate participation especially when many questions, many people, and soon are involved.
