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

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.

Application Deadline (Scholarships): 19 April 2019Applications of qualified, self-financed candidates can be considered after this deadline.

While Short-term observer (STO) assignments are usually very short, the responsibility and scope of LTO is far more complex and requires much greater understanding of the various steps and processes in the organisation and running of elections. A long-term observer (LTO) is expected to gain first-hand knowledge about the effectiveness and impartiality of the pre-election administration; the implementation of the election law and regulations; the nature of the campaign; and the political environment prior to voting dayas well as the relevant preparations for the arrival and deployment of STOs. 

The course employs a mixture of theory and practice to equip participants with state-of-the-art methodologies derived from on-the-ground experience, also taking into account the working environment of the participants. The participants will be involved in lectures, inter-active discussions, and simulations.  Election observation methodologies and approaches of relevant multilateral organisations will be presented. Complex election day observation exercises will be carried out and analysed.

Participants will

  • Understand the concept of elections as part of the democratic process
  • Become familiar with concepts and practices of democracy
  • Understand the relationship between elections and human rights and the democratic standards for elections
  • Analyse the complete election  cycle in a complex simulation exercise

COURSE FEES: € 1,365.-
