Conflict Analysis for Sustaining Peace
Preventing the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of conflict is a hugely ambitious task, but a more integrated, strategic and coherent approach across and beyond the UN system can achieve and sustain peace. As acknowledged by the latest round of UN reviews, this requires strengthened capacities to conduct sound conflict analysis and to translate such analysis into conflict-sensitive, politically savvy responses to violence and fragility. Failing to do so, means not only missing opportunities to contribute directly to sustaining peace, but also risking to impact negatively upon local peace dynamics.
This online tutored course introduces UN staff and partners to conflict analysis and its application towards preventing conflict and sustaining peace. Applying an inter-agency and multi-disciplinary lens, this course builds practical skills on conflict analysis and provides UN staff and partners with a solid framework to engage with both volatile political situations where a conflict prevention lens is required and post-conflict settings where the consolidation of peace is the priority.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the main concepts, core components and phases of conflict analysis;
- Apply conflict analysis tools in a systematic way to a specific case study to identify priorities and entry points for sustaining peace outcomes;
- Articulate good practices and quality criteria to conduct a conflict analysis process in the context of the new sustaining peace agenda;
- Discuss ways to integrate conflict analysis into planning and programming processes.
