INCORE (International Conflict Research Institute) at the University of Ulster wishes you to invite you to the 13th International Summer School. The 2012 International Summer School will run from 18th-22nd June 2012. The Summer School will be based on the historic Magee Campus in the city of Derry/Londonderry, on the shores of Lough Foyle in the north west of Northern Ireland, easily accessible by road, rail and air.
The INCORE Summer School provides a structured learning opportunity to analyse the dynamic and constantly changing field of conflict resolution and peacebuilding.
This year we are offering four courses to choose from:
Evaluation in Conflict Prone Settings: This course seeks to attract early to mid-level professionals who are facing evaluation challenges in conflict prone settings and are involved in commissioning, managing, or conducting evaluations in a programming or policy-making capacity.
Learning from a society in transition: The case of Northern Ireland -The module will be framed around three key components: a theoretical and academic analysis of the conflict; insights from local policymakers and practitioners with immediate experience of the opportunities, challenges and risks of dealing with the transition; and the shared learning of the participants enrolled in the module, both local and international.
Language, Truth and the Politics of Memory in Conflict: This module examines the role of language and memory as important elements of conflict, peacebuilding and reconciliation. It will investigate the challenges of dealing with disputed truth claims by multiple conflicting actors regarding the past, the Other (the enemy), the conflict situation and themselves.
Peacemaking and Peacebuilding in Nothern Ireland: This module is an introduction to the theory and practice of peacemaking and peace building in Northern Ireland; peacemaking within the context of Northern Ireland; issues on dealing with the past in Northern Ireland; inter-communal divisions and community relations; and policing in a transitional society.
Alongside these modules we also run the Northern Ireland programme to provide participants with an opportunity to network with others, gaining a deeper insight into into the causes and consequences of the conflict in Northern Ireland.
The International Summer School attracts experienced participants from a wide diversity of backgrounds.The small class sizes mean that spaces are limited and are in high demand. Individuals are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
