The Certificate Training on Peace and Conflict provided participants with a comprehensive introduction to concepts, tools and methods in the field of conflict transformation. In the first half of the course, the focus was on an in-depth exploration of key terms and concepts as well as tools of conflict analysis.
During the second part of the training, the conflict situation KODORI was implemented, dealing with proto-typical challenges of a post-war situation. In the role of key stakeholders, the participants had the task to negotiate a comprehensive peace agreement after a first ceasefire had been agreed upon. This experience gave the possibility for the participants to test the gained competencies in a realistic environment, get a deeper understanding of complex conflict dynamics and develop ideas for effective interventions in conflict settings. The whole training course was held interactively, giving space for reflection as well as an exchange of experiences between the participants.
Participants were young and mid-level professionals, working in NGOs or governmental organisation from Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Mongolia.
