IPT Master Class on Intersectional Gender Work and Peace Building

The world we live in undergoes vast global and social changes! Emerging new challenges and needs, such as the integration of refugees and immigrants, debates on human rights, and gender-related power struggles all call for creative alternative practices and frameworks that allow personal and collective narratives to enter our conversations, working-, learning- and living spaces!

In the light of #metoo and #whyididntreport this Master Class examines how theory can be translated into practice and how various dilemmas pertaining to people navigating a changing world can be successfully adressed in the peace- and development work.

Thus, this Master Class focuses on practices of emancipatory critical pedagogy in armed conflicts and in post conflict situations, in relation to methods that promote sustainable peace and human rights advocacy around experiences, questions and concerns related to gender. Furthermore, emerging new challenges and needs, such as the integration of refugees and immigrants, debates on human rights, and gender-related power struggles all call for creative alternative practices and frameworks that allow personal and collective narratives to enter our conversations, working-, learning- and living spaces!

Master Class on Dialogue Methods for Peacebuilding - with Han Verhoeven & Henk van Apeldoorn

Limited partial Scholarships available!
Applications will be accepted on a rolling bases!

The objective of this IPT Master Class is to support the development of democratic and stabilized societies through preparing participants for designing and facilitating dialogues of small and large groups with conflicting interests.
We live in times of constant changes. Enormous societal and environmental complex challenges lead to conflict at different levels. Can we improve in dialogue methodology to avoid escalation into violence? Henk and Han worked with non-violent ways of solving conflicts, in widely different contexts. Ranging from interreligious dialogue in Nigeria to conflicts over basic resources like water in Puntland & Somaliland. In Eastern Africa, they worked with youth and the temptations to resort to violence in a future with narrowing options and lack of inclusion. How to ensure that young voices are heard by deciders? Can we find ways to make rural voices audible in the capital?
Even in fragile states a mix of traditional and modern dialogue and mediation methods can prevent escalation towards violence.
