Women in Peace Mediation Course, 24 - 28 November 2015, Istanbul
The process of attaining sustainable peace requires the inclusion of the entire society. This cannot be achieved if women, who bear the brunt conflicts, are not involved in peace processes in active and meaningful ways. While women have been continuously engaged in grassroots peacebuilding initiatives in the South Caucasus, they remain at the margins of formal politics and are largely excluded from the official peace processes.
The Women in Peace Mediation Course offers participants rigorous training sessions to enhance their peace process design competencies, mediation and negotiation skills and related knowledge base. The four training modules are also designed to provide support to the participants in developing multitrack inclusivity models in their respective contexts.
Participants will be selected based on the following criteria:
• Proven record of experience in peacebuilding at large
• Strong commitment to women, peace and security issues
• Willingness to commit to the entire program
• English language proficiency
• Established professionals and emerging experts alike from across the region
