Summer Course On Conflict Resolution And Peacebuilding Skills

13 May 2013 - Monday

The Centre for Peace and Reconciliation Studies at Coventry University, in partnership with Kadir Has University, present this experiential skills-building workshop on conflict resolution. Conflict itself is an inevitable consequence of change and development, and while we all come across conflict in our daily lives the mishandling of it can cause us and those around us significant harm. In this workshop, we offer insights into the dynamics of conflict at all levels, from personal to global. As well as providing an introduction to conflict analysis, we seek to strengthen participants’ competencies in the range of skills needed to resolve conflict effectively, including communication, negotiation, and personal and situational awareness. We do this by case-studying the approaches of others seeking to manage conflict constructively around the world, from diplomats to non-violence activists, and trying out conflict resolution methods which can be used in a range of home, work and community contexts. The course caters to a wide range of participants – from advanced-year undergraduate students, graduate students, and non-academic professionals.
