  • ICM Process

  • The ICM Process ( seeks to facilitate and promote communication among people in areas of conflict and to explore avenues for constructive cooperation towards conflict resolution. The Process is based on the premise that, while 'solutions' to long-standing disputes are never guaranteed or easily available, it is nevertheless important to foster ideas and allow information to flow between conflicting parties and divided populations to promote a greater understanding from which a collaborative dialogue may emerge.

    The ICM Process seeks understanding and resolution in areas of conflict within the context of non-discriminatory, equitable, representative and transparent processes of negotiation, which deny a position of privilege in negotiating processes to those who resort to terrorism, their sponsors and their front organizations. The Process recognizes democratic representation, political and civil rights, and fundamental freedoms, as integral to any process of resolution in areas of contemporary conflict. It seeks, moreover, solutions that reject the creation of arbitrary boundaries and divisions between communities and social, ethnic, religious or ideological identities, and recognizes, at once, the need to nurture and protect cultural diversity, as also the unity and indivisibility of human identity and values, as well as the imperatives of integration in a globalizing world order. The ICM Process endeavors to draw upon a wide synthesis of human experiences across peoples, communities and nations, and to foster a dialogue on the future geo-political architecture of South Asia within the progressively integrating 'global village'.
