Social Dialogue for Effective Monitoring and Evaluation

What is Social Dialogue? What makes it different from argument and discussion?
Martin Buber, a Jewish philosopher, described the purpose of dialogue is to establish   connection between participants. In the context of development projects in Vietnam, Social Dialogue is to establish connections between community people, local authorities and public services. These connections enhance their mutual understanding, self-adjustment and cooperation for successful implementation of development policies and programmes in the community.
