As part of The Asia Foundation’s Dispute Resolution in NWFP (now called Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), the project conducted a baseline survey in seven districts including Peshawar, Nowshera, Mardan, Swabi, Haripur, Abbottabad, and Mansehra. TDEA performed the following tasks:
- Developed a methodology for random selection of 10 primary sampling units (PSU), i.e., polling stations of the Election Commission of Pakistan, in each of the target districts for the purpose of identifying a random selection of 100 households in each district (10 from each PSU).
- Conducted district-wise rapid assessment of the functioning and caseloads of the police, Musalihat Committee (selected), Musalihat Anjumans (selected), and other dispute resolution mechanisms.
- Designed and refined research tools; prepared and pilot-tested the database, and coded FGD tools and the framework of analysis.
