Through self-reflection and group discussion you will work on your own attitude, communication and behaviour. We provide you with a suitably complex theoretical and practical fundamental understanding of conflict dynamics and their non-violent transformation within peacebuilding work. This includes clarifying the key concepts of civil conflict transformation as well as providing a deeper understanding of your role and attitude as an expert in this field.

Your professional and life experiences as well as the expertise acquired during overseas projects in civil conflict transformation, development cooperation or related fields form the starting point for the collective learning experience in an intercultural setting. Observations during the course, both inside and outside the classroom, will also become a resource for joint exploration of the subjects of peace and conflict. The combination of techniques based on experience and dialogue with traditional learning methods will allow you to gain an in-depth understanding of conflict transformation.
