Following a recap of the previously learned Do-No-Harm approach and complementary postcolonial perspectives, we will introduce the concept of conflict transformation as well as a selection of conflict analysis tools. The heart of the workshop is the application of fundamentals of conflict transformation, conflict analysis tools and other learned concepts in an interactive simulation game. By actively engaging in the simulation, the participants test their knowledge and skills while facing the challenge to initiate decision-making processes on their own responsibility. Such an approach visualizes unconscious behavior and thinking patterns while consciously strengthening the participants' ability to act and enhancing their capability to actively integrate principles of conflict sensitivity.
