Peace and conflict work is an evolving field. While practitioners should be equipped with the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes that they need to effectively support the peacebuilding and conflict transformation efforts in specific contexts, they should also be familiar with the current and emerging themes and discourses. This deepening and broadening of perspectives will greatly support to achieving more meaningful and constructive impacts within the communities.

This online course offers to practitioners, a mixture of established and emerging approaches, concepts and tools in current practices of peace work, which can also be applied in the related fields of development and humanitarian work. Further, this course will serve as a platform for practitioners to reflect critically on the benefits, as well as the limits of applying these current themes and approaches.

The course utilizes the elicitive training model, where trainers and participants are equals and are both sources of knowledge. It is also based on the adult learning approach where the participants are engaged in the process, utilizing their own experiences as a resources, and where their learning journey are oriented towards application in the near future.


This is an 11-week online part time course. There will be 3-hour live sessions two times a week (Mondays and Thursdays) from 10:00 (CEST/CET) to 13:00 (CEST/CET). In addition to these 6 hours of live sessions per week, participants should plan with 4 hours for self-paced learning and group work.

The online course offers the following modules:

- Introduction
- Power and Identity
- Systems thinking in Conflict Transformation
- Environment, People and Conflict
- Steering Stakeholder Processes
- Peace Programming with better impacts
- Wrap up and closing


The course is intended for practitioners from the fields of peace and conflict work, as well as those coming from the related fields of development and humanitarian aid who want to get the chance to learn the current frameworks and approaches introduced in the course. It is expected that they are familiar with the Peacebuilding/Conflict transformation basic concepts and theories. As the content aims at conceptual project work and the bridge to the implementation, practitioners involved in the design and steering of projects and programs would be the optimal participants.
