The Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the Department of Peace and Conflict Research (DPCR) Uppsala University are jointly hosting the 2023 International Training on Dialogue and Mediation (ITDM). It is built on over 50 year’s peace and conflict research and education at Uppsala University and the Foundation’s ongoing engagement in international peacebuilding and sustaining peace policy discussions.
Practitioners, policymakers, researchers and mid-level leaders from international and regional organisations, civil society and universities will be able to learn about how to apply dialogue and mediation in peacebuilding and sustaining peace. Course participants will be able to discuss and develop new approaches to their peace maintenance actions. They will be able to explore their interests according to the following themes: International roles in mediation and peace agreements; Inclusive national- and community level dialogue; and Methods and practical skill-building in dialogue and mediation.
Individuals who are from and are currently working in developing countries and territories eligible for Official Development Assistance (ODA). The training programme is for 25 participants and the selection criteria will take equal gender participation, global geographic variation, representation across different types of organisations as well as experience into consideration.
