Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) Religion, Peace & Conflict
The media often reports about religiously motivated acts of violence. At the same time, throughout history, religions repeatedly contributed to peacebuilding. In the CAS Religion, Peace & Conflict you will reflect upon these ambivalences with experts from academia and practice and look into concrete case studies and peacebuilding approaches relating to religion.
In this program you will:
Learn about concrete methods of conflict analysis and discuss which roles religiously motivated actors play in conflict contexts;

Study conflicts with a religious dimension through case studies and learn about different peacebuilding approaches to transform these conflicts;
Unpack contested notions such as „radicalization“ and „extremism”;
Exchange experiences and become part of a community of practice.
The course is designed for practitioners and academics interested in bridging their experiences with academic insights and practical knowledge on Peacebuilding Methodologies.
