The aim of the project is the training of selected, civic experts from the field of peace and conflict work. Through the training the participants should gain the tools to increase the quality and flexibility of local conflict management and therefore contribute to the solving of current and future conflicts in the countries of the Eastern Partnership.
Through the training of civic actors in the field of peace and conflict work the project intends to improve the quality and flexibility of civic conflict solving in the countries of the Eastern Partnership. Therefore ‘quality’ refers to the ability of the local experts to adopt methods and standards of conflict solving and as a consequence raise the acceptance of the population towards these actors. ‘Flexibility’ refers to the ability of the local experts to adapt immediately to changes and new challenges.
The project is designed as a series of workshops and an implementation phase:
Module 1: Introduction to the project and the theoretical background of peace and conflict work. Peer-to-peer exchange between the participants regarding former experiences and achievements. Presentation of local ‘good practice’ projects by external speakers.
Module 2: Introduction to theories, types and methods of conflict analysis and management. Presentation and analysis of local conflicts by the participants.
Module 3: Introduction to techniques of conflict solving, adult education and project management.
Implementation phase: Participants design and implement one workshop in their home-countries.
Module 4: Evaluation and reflection of local workshops. Exchange of ‘lessons learnt’ experiences from the implementation phase and compiling of ‘best practice’ examples.
TARGET GROUPThe project targets young experts (minimum age 25 years) with former experiences in the field of conflict management. Furthermore, also people without practical experience in conflict management but former involved in this field of work are welcome to join. The group of participants should cover different conflict areas, represent women and men equally and also include civic actors from rural areas. Through the implementation phase also civilians, who are currently affected by conflicts get the possibility to participate in the process of conflict solving.
