In our training courses, you will be familiarised with all of the fundamental principles of civil conflict transformation, along with various forms of conflict intervention from a conflict transformation perspective. You will acquire the technical and project-related competencies as well as the social and people skills needed for practical projects in the fields of civil conflict transformation, conflict-sensitive development cooperation and humanitarian aid.

In peace and conflict work, a peace expert’s character is a key resource. Encouraging our participants to observe, reflect and develop their own conflict and communication behavior lies at the heart of our courses.

You will receive a compact theoretical and practical introduction to the analysis, planning and intervention tools relevant to peace work. By combining techniques based on experience and dialogue with traditional learning methods, our courses offer a unique opportunity to focus on peace and conflict work.

Our ten-week, full-time course in peace and conflict work takes place twice a year and is conducted in English.

Our part-time blended learning course is conducted in German and held every year from February to November.
