International Training on Dialogue and Mediation

This new training provides practitioners, policymakers and researchers with a unique opportunity to explore the use of dialogue and mediation in building and sustaining peace.


 

The International Training on Dialogue and Mediation will be held in Uppsala on 7-17 June 2017. It builds on 45 years of peace and conflict research and education at Uppsala University, combined with insights from the Dag Hammarskjöld 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 and researchers 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 will 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.
