Training 1.3

Conflict Management and Conflict Transformation

Dates: November 26 – December 7, 2018

Conflict management and conflict transformation are core issues of development work. Development projects are not only affected by conflict, but also run the risk of aggravating existing conflicts in a particular region or even triggering new conflicts.

This training course gives a sound understanding of the phenomenon of conflict, which we will explore on the personal and interpersonal level, as well as on the level of large groups and societies.
