Project Evaluation: Pakistan Radio: A Forum For Moderate Voices (2011) Search For Common Ground (SFCG) Pakistan, with financial support from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, implemented the fourteen-month project, “Pakistan Radio: A Forum For Moderate Voices” (also known as “Radio for Peacebuilding”), from November 23, 2009 through March 31, 2011. The project sought to raise awareness around peacebuilding processes and promote moderate voices throughout Pakistan through the production of innovative local radio programs. SFCG Pakistan and its local partners- Intermedia Pakistan and Uks Research, Resource and Publication Center on Women and Media- trained and coached local radio producers and presenters to facilitate constructive, culturally sensitive dialogue on key issues related to peace and conflict in Pakistan. The Department of Peace and Conflict Studies at National Defence University and the Department of Statistics at Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad-Pakistan conducted an external evaluation of the Radio for Peacebuilding project. Their evaluation analyzed quantitative and qualitative data collected through control group exercises, interviews and focus group discussions, surveys, post-training tests, and radio content analyses. Evaluation data confirmed several positive outcomes, including increased awareness of peacebuilding principles among radio hosts and producers and strong support for the project among key stakeholders throughout Pakistan.
