Who can register for this block?

This block course is intended for people who work in or plan to enter the field of civil conflict transformation, non-violent activism, peacebuilding or conflict-sensitive international cooperation.

Depending on methods and topic of the training, we limit the number of available spaces to a maximum of 16 participants. Register early to reserve your place! 


Peace programming focuses on addressing key conflict driving factors or on addressing specific needs of the conflict affected communities. There are however, diverse themes or aspects that intersect peace programming and affect multiple stakeholders, sectors and project outcomes. Integrating cross-cutting themes into project/program design balances the need for clarity of focus with the need for broader coverage. Further, it helps increase the relevance and effectiveness of interventions, as well as possibly reaching a much wider impact.

This block course offers three cross-cutting themes that are relevant to all contexts, and that are applicable not only in peace programming but also humanitarian and development project/program design. The cross-cutting themes are organized in three modules namely: Power and Identity (4 days), the interdependence of the Environment, People and Conflict (4 days) and Conflict Sensitivity (4 days).

These trainings can also be booked separately. As these three trainings complement each other we are offering a 10% discount when they are booked together.

The responsibility for obtaining the visa lies with each of the participants themselves.
