Training:

Our company facilitates the courses on Conflict Analysis for Prevention and Peacebuilding for UN staff at HQ and in the field, as well as for CSOs and CBOs. The training is conducted by our associate Mr. Rob Watson. The objective of the course is to build practical skills on the conflict analysis and develop methods and tools to design interventions for conflict prevention or peacebuilding. The course includes a range of standard conflict analysis concepts and tools that enable participants to analyze their context (causes, actors, timeline, drivers, connectors/dividers, hotspots and entry points) and integrate a conflict lens in their work in emerging and existing conflicts in their local areas.  The course is based on extensive experience both in the UN and other organizations and provides practical guidance on analyzing complex conflict situations and developing practical conflict prevention and peacebuilding interventions (both direct and integrated approaches).
