The Henry Everett Summer Workshop for Professionals
Working with Issues of Conflict, Peace and Justice
- Do you have experience in mediation, dispute resolution, or peace-building?
- Would you like to learn more about the deep-rooted identity conflicts that make even simplest of interest-based conflicts all the more protracted?
- Do you want to learn new methods for such seemingly unresolvable conflicts that use history and memory as central tools?
- Would you like to do so while meeting and sharing with and hearing from mediators and practitioners facilitating peace and making strategies for the most difficult conflicts around the world?
"I was struck how closely human emotion is intertwined with history...as emotion is what is truly behind any conflict, there will be no solution to conflicts if we leave history out."
~ last year’s participant reflecting on the role plays used during the workshop.
WHO: International Center for Conciliation (ICfC)*
WHAT: ICfC will share its unique methodology through a training session facilitated by an interdisciplinary team of trainers, mediators, and facilitators from Cambodia, Israel, Europe and the USA, with work experience on the issues of history, memory, and social conflict from around the world.
WHEN: The program will run from 7pm on Friday, June 29th through 5pm on Sunday, July 1st.
WHERE: Downtown Boston location with a scenic view of harbor and the city.
WHY: This workshop is intended for mediators and/or professionals who have completed basic training and have experience in mediation, conflict resolution, or peace-building. The training will focus on an alternative method of mediation, addressing conflict and post-conflict conciliation of divided societies developed to embrace the complexities of historical conciliation in identity conflicts. The workshop is designed to be engaging and interactive and teaches through role-plays, improvisations, exercises, discussions and lessons based on conflicts from around the world. Some participants will have the opportunity to present their own projects for group consultations during a clinic.
It is also a workshop built on collaboration and sharing; suggestions for what you’d like to see on the agenda are welcome.
