"I believe that the best pathway to transcending the oppression is engaging people in disciplined democratic dialogue for the purpose of building consensus, peace, and common ground. However, the discovery of the common ground can emerge only from community development at the local level and not by external agencies or authorities. This is the mistake we make again and again. In essence without community development work in we cannot experience peace and reconciliation. This is the meaning of thinking locally and acting globally"
