The Alliance for Conflict Transformation (ACT) is pleased to announce the Summer Institute on Peacebuilding & Conflict Resolution (IPCR). IPCR is an intensive 3-week residential program intended to build the capacity of current and future professionals in a variety of fields to make a critical difference in furthering peaceful relations in the world.
The course is offered in two locations to best meet your needs and interests as follows:
- Santa Cruz, Bolivia: June 10 ¬ July 1, 2006
- Jakarta, Indonesia: July 22 ¬ August 12, 2006
We are currently accepting applications for participation from English speaking professionals, graduate and upper-level undergraduate students in peace and conflict resolution, international affairs, political science, Latin American studies, anthropology, development and related fields.
AT IPCR, students enjoy a supportive learning environment where experienced trainers and faculty combine brief lectures, case studies, field trips, role-plays, simulations, and field work with the experiences of local and international peacebuilding practitioners.
IPCR offers a stimulating integration of theory and practice, bringing together innovative academic analysis with practical, hands-on training and skills development. Participants will learn about these topics and more:
- Conflict analysis & assessment
- Conflict resolution and peacebuilding practices
- Cross-sectoral approaches to peacebuilding and conflict resolution (i.e., with development, human rights, etc)
- Post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation
- Skills development in negotiation, mediation, facilitation, project design, and evaluation
- Case studies at the community, national and international level, Latin America, Asia and other regions
- Careers in peacebuilding and conflict resolution
“In addition to gaining a basic understanding of conflict analysis and a set of practical skills applicable to a variety of fields, I truly benefited from having access to real-world practitioners and the exposure to an insider¹s view of regional conflicts. IPCR is practical, hands-on, and highly recommended for anyone interested in pursuing a professional career in conflict resolution, peacebuilding, or related fields.” Michael Pankow, Human Rights Watch
