Systemic Conflict Analysis
Interventions in conflicts by peace and development services aim at contributing to constructive conflict transformation. Research on such interventions suggests that frequent problems in conflict interventions are the gap between analysis and strategy as well as a far too linear understanding of the conflict dynamics. As a consequence, interventions limit themselves to specific segments of the complex conflict setting or to limited approaches.
Conflict analysis plays a crucial role in the planning of interventions by outside actors as well as for designing suitable strategies by actors who are part of the conflict system. The task is to deal with a dilemma: understand complexities sufficiently, but still remain able to visualise the relevant dynamics.
The course aims at introducing participants to the approach of conflict analysis and relating it to the state of the art in this field. It encourages participants to apply instruments in a participatory way as they would do in the field. Entry points offered by conflict analysis for strategy building are identified. Participants are challenged to develop their own ability to change perspectives in conflict settings.
