International Training on Dialogue and Mediation
Each year the Foundation holds the International Training on Dialogue and Mediation with the Department of Peace and Conflict Research. It welcomes participants from around the world to Uppsala for ten days of interactive lectures and training. The programme builds on 45 years of peace and conflict research and education at Uppsala University, combined with insights from the Foundation’s ongoing engagement in international policy discussions in the peacebuilding field.
Many regional inter-governmental organisations active in the area of dialogue and mediation globally have created special units for engaging with conflict prevention, mediation, peacemaking or peacebuilding. Similar developments can be observed in regional civil society organisations. In this rapid and dynamic process, practitioners have increasingly come to realise the importance of a continuous exchange of knowledge, experience and perspectives to improve understanding and performance.
This training is specially designed for practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and mid-level leaders from international and regional organisations, civil society and universities with a particular focus on the use of dialogue in building and sustaining peace in developing countries and territories eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA). Participants become acquainted with the latest research in this field, guided by skilled experts, and will jointly reflect on its relevance and applicability to their ongoing work while developing a network of colleagues from other countries.
The training specifically targets practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and mid-level professionals from international and regional organisations, civil society and universities with a particular focus on dialogue in peacebuilding and sustaining peace. The programme is primarily designed for individuals engaged in various peace efforts and with prior professional experience in the field of peace and security. Applicants should be able to relate to the three themes on dialogue and mediation specified under ‘Content’ earlier in this brochure.
