Master Class on Psychosocial Work and Peacebuilding - with David Becker and Kate Sheese

Approaching and analysing a conflict, peacebuilders should take into consideration the complexity of the whole system and all parties involved rather than focusing on just one particular cause or a single event even if it was responsible for triggering the conflict. In the course, participants will learn methods and develop skills to find the right approach to a peace project and to be able to anticipate the possible effects of intervention.

Specialization Course on Governance and Peacebuilding

“Local governments are often the first to collapse when factions fight for territorial control. In post-conflict settings, the state is often unable to effectively reach parts of its territory for years. Given these challenges, it is no surprise that decentralization and local governance provisions are increasingly prominent in peace agreements and national post-conflict peacebuilding agendas.” (UN SSC)

The role of local and national NGOs, the transparency and legitimacy of the leaders, as well as the representation and participation of the citizens are increasingly important in these processes.
The course will explore essential topics such as
- the legitimacy of the government
- the capacity available for the government
- eventual sharing of the power (e.g. government and rebels)
- fragility of the government.
