21:13IPT Specialisation Course on Conflict Transformation
The Specialization Course on "Conflict Transformation” aims at enhancing the effectiveness of specialists in fields other than conflict transformation by adding skills for their conflict sensitive action. They can thus improve their daily work in the field, even if they are not primarily conflict workers. It also helps practitioners of conflict transformation to adapt their pre-existing knowledge to the field work context.
The course is built on different modules aiming at increasing the participants’ operational awareness and handling of the complexity and interrelation of conflict issues as well as the modalities, techniques and impact of third party interventions as related to conflict and peace.
Date: 25 July – 6 August 2010
Deadline: 12 May 2010
- People who are specialists in their own area of competence (e.g. human rights, project management) and would like to combine their already existing expertise with skills on conflict transformation in a fieldwork context.
