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!
