Information seminar on the work of a Peace and Conflict Consultant

Civil Peace Service (CPS) is the principal German policy instrument of public-civil society peacebuilding efforts in crisis and conflict contexts. This seminar offers an insight into the tasks and work contexts of a peace and conflict consultant within the CPS programme. Furthermore, information on professional training and development will be provided for both recent graduates and experienced professionals.

A broad range of careers

From human rights monitoring to setting up structures for dialogue and cooperation to dealing with the past or working with trauma: the work contexts and tasks of a peace and conflict consultant within Civil Peace Service are manifold. However, what they all have in common is close cooperation with local partner organisations. Whether you are a young professional or a career changer with professional experience, civil conflict transformation and peacebuilding offers a broad range of career options for various professional paths.
