There is more to a conflict than just one particular cause or single event. It is therefore of decisive importance for peacebuilding projects to take the whole system and all parties involved into consideration when conducting a conflict analysis. A nuanced and thorough analysis is essential to finding the right approach to a peace project and to anticipating the possible effects of intervention.

In this seminar, participants will use real conflict case studies to familiarize themselves with the various steps of a systemic conflict analysis. They will also learn how to identify entry points for interventions and how to develop conflict transformation strategies.

Key Topics

  • Introduction to systems thinking and conflict analysis
  • The systemic conflict analysis: the 7 step approach
  • Application to real conflict case studies
  • Employing a systemic approach to conflict analysis/systems & developing a conflict transformation strategy and programme

Training approaches

  • We will work with an interactive adult learning methodology applied throughout and enable a collaborative learning environment.
  • We will work with concrete case studies of the participants which enable direct or immediate application
  • The adult learning methodology enhances and encourages peer review and constructive feedback on peacebuilding practice.
