Who can register for the course

The content will be relevant both for those new to peacebuilding, as well as those already working in or experienced with peacebuilding.


The 2-week training will offer valuable information and practices for between 12 and 16 participants. This training serves as an introduction to the concepts, language, and tools applied in peacebuilding work for professionals who are either working in peacebuilding, or who are interested in learning more about peacebuilding. While week 1 places its focus on the foundations of peacebuilding (both from a theoretical and practical perspective), week 2 is mostly dedicated to developing soft-skills like communication, understanding team dynamics in cross-cultural contexts, and reflecting upon one’s own role in peacebuilding activities.


  • Develop a deeper understanding of what peacebuilding and conflict transformation means, and how peace work specifically contributes to this field of work
  • Identify some of the most common entry points and approaches to civil conflict transformation
  • Develop a better understanding of their own role as peace workers and the knowledge and skills that they will need
  • Become aware of the role of that stress, burn-out, self-reflection, and self-care play in one’s ability to contribute meaningfully towards peacebuilding
  • Develop skills related to non-violent communication, congruent communication, active listening and/or intercultural communication
