About us

The Academy for Conflict Transformation in the Forum Civil Peace Service is a professional learning space for peace work. In our courses and seminars, we have been training experts to do international peacebuilding for over 15 years.

Our goal is to provide specialists who are looking to work in international peace projects and conflict-sensitive development cooperation with practical tools that allow them to make a contribution to building sustainable peace. Something that is of great importance for us is the ability to work with local partners, who are able to encourage peace in their own countries and are seeking to win other groups over to join their cause.

In our courses and seminars we create learning spaces where theory meets practice. The content to be taught corresponds with methods aimed at developing personal growth, self-determination, responsibility and the ability to act in conflicts. One of our central concerns is fostering a personal attitude that is orientated towards peace-related values amongst all those who participate in our course and seminar work.

Our international training staff have been working in civil conflict transformation projects themselves for many years. The expertise they have gained over the years is put at the disposal of all those who take part in our courses and seminars.

In addition, we also offer consultancy for organisations working in international development cooperation and humanitarian aid. In doing so, we create the basis for doing conflict-nsitive work even in projects which are not primarily about conflict transformation.

More information on our team's structure can be in the list of staff.

The work of the Academy for Conflict Transformation is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
