From 16 to 20 May, CRISP in partnership with the OSCE Academy in Bishkek conducted the Certificate Training in Peace and Conflict for junior and mid-level professionals from civil society, NGOs, and governmental organizations. The training provided 25 participants from Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Russia with a comprehensive introduction to concepts, tools, and methods in the field of conflict transformation. During the course, participants explored key terms, concepts and tools of conflict analysis. In the second part of the training, the conflict situation KODORI was implemented, dealing with proto-typical challenges of a post-conflict situation. Participants had the chance to play the roles of key stakeholders and negotiate a comprehensive peace agreement.  By this they could apply their gained skills and knowledge in a realistic setting and reflect about the relevance for their daily work.
