Human rights, conflict, peace and development are closely linked, but the linkages are not always evident in practice. Misconceptions exist; such as that conflict prevention involves making unacceptable compromises or that human rights engagement means delaying lasting peace. Even though they engage with similar national partners and both aim to build just and peaceful societies, conflict prevention practitioners and human rights practitioners do not always work together and at worst the divide can lead to them working against each other.

This online tutored course offers insights on how conflict transformation and human rights approaches complement one another, and on how UN staff and partners can leverage on these linkages. Through practical examples and case studies, this course demonstrates how working across disciplines can enhance practice and facilitate dialogue and coordination across the disciplines building on the comparative advantage of one another and exploring what the nexus entails.


By the end of the course participants will be able to:
- Explain the concepts, focus areas, and strategies in the fields of conflict transformation and human rights;
- Describe the relevance of linking human rights and conflict transformation and appreciate the UN practice in this area;
- Identify challenges and dilemmas related to linking human rights and conflict transformation;
- Apply the knowledge to a generic case by incorporating elements from both perspectives in their analysis of conflict-related situations.
