Online Course: Deepening our Peace Practice

This online course, offered by the Academy for Conflict Transformation, provides a mixture of established and emerging approaches, concepts and tools in current practices of peace work, which can also be applied in the related fields of development and humanitarian work.

The modules that build the core pillars of the course are:

  • Power and Identity
  • Systemic Thinking in Peacebuilding
  • Environment, People, and Conflict
  • Steering stakeholder processes
  • Programming for better impact

Through this selection of approaches the course supports experts from the peace as well as the humanitarian and development sector in a conflict-sensitive program work. The systems-based understanding of conflicts and of the work within these form the center of the course, in which the lenses of intersectionality and environmental dimensions are integrated.

Almost all peace projects build on local networks, partners and stakeholders to put new developments and concepts into practice. Therefore, the collaboration, and creation of meaningful participation in dynamic contexts with high power asymmetries and shrinking spaces are key for the successful peace work. Changing the focus, the course seeks to provide insights on how to mainstream new approaches into project work, providing best practices and space for in peer exchange.
