CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN CONFLICT PREVENTION & PEACEBUILDING
Upcoming Dates to be Announced. Please note, the full
certificate program or individual components from it can be delivered
upon special request. Please contact us
for further information.
The Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding Certificate Program
is a ten-day, comprehensive program focusing on the theory, models, and
skills applicable to conflict prevention and peacebuilding. This
knowledge can be applied in conflict zones, complex humanitarian
emergencies, fragile, and failing states as well as post conflict
transitions from war to peace.
The course is designed to provide participants with opportunities to
build bridges between theory and practice. It will also enhance their
work with others to prevent violence, make peace, keep peace and build
peace in increasingly challenging conflict situations. Developing
networks with others who work in the conflict field and zones of
conflict is an added benefit for those going through the program.
Conflict analysis, negotiation, mediation and multiparty dialogue
skills are central to the program, as is advocacy for violence
prevention/peace and programming through a conflict lens.
The course encompasses a wide range of materials in a highly
interactive learning environment. Participants will be introduced
to the latest theories, models, and skills in the context of the most
current developments in international conflict prevention and
peacebuilding. The realities of conflict, characteristics of our
changing times, and the challenges that intervening actors must face is
the point of departure.
Please Note: Proficiency in English Required
Course instruction is provided in English. Given that the
program is highly interactive and participatory, proficiency in the
English language by participants is essential. Participants must be
able to read, write and speak English fluently.
