About the workshop
Are you working in or affected by violent conflict? This workshop is for professionals from government, international agencies and civil society who are interested to learn from peace-building best practice and methods and tools that work to sustain peace. As professionals we are required to analyse local conflict (root) causes, capacity and interests of actors and appreciate local conflict dynamics. Experience shows that organisations which use conflict analysis well can develop better responses to promote peace, conflict prevention and resilience or conflict sensitivity. The workshop will draw on over 30 years’ experience and research on peace best practice in 32 countries with some of the best there is, including the United Nations, the European Union and others.

What the workshop will cover
The workshop will cover the most important learning to enable you to manage conflict analysis and design of interventions to influence peace, based on the specific causes, actors and dynamics of your analysis and your (organisation’s) comparative advantage.

During the workshop you will:
• Explore personal experiences of conflict and the importance of personal values and perspectives
• Appreciate seminal policies, mandates and best practices for promoting peace
• Do a full conflict analysis including causes, actors and dynamics
• Value the ‘leave no one behind’ mandate and hear how to engage groups such as women, youth, traditional and faith leaders
• Design interventions to sustain peace and set markers for monitoring results.
The workshop is highly participatory and applied, working from participants’ experience, case studies and examples from the field – inter-woven with presentations and group exercises for problem-solving and peer learning.

• A high quality training and learning opportunity to gain practical methods and tools for conflict analysis and sustaining peace
