Track VI Diplomacy: Peace Activism Training

The depth and width of peace activism is globally vast. Peace activism presence in conflict resolution research has played an important part in supporting democratic institutions and social movements worldwide. Grassroots and institutional initiatives for peace over the last century provide a wealth of case studies for current peace activists. Common knowledge remains skeptical about the possibilities for change through peace activism diplomacy. Yet, professional study of conflict resolution and recent historical events reveal that training, strategic planning, and cooperation can provide sufficient tools for peace activists to effect change.


Effective Communication Training

Communication happens constantly. Verbal and non-verbal communications form the basis of human interactions. To these interactions, we come with habits of language, style, culture and approach. These allow for misunderstandings, and building frustration often resulting in conflicts – at work, in our families and partnerships. Our effective communication training will give you the opportunity to see those habits clearly and anew. The tools you will learn and practice will allow you to better understand yourself and others and to constructively shape the interactions in your life.

IMTD-East Certification for Mediators

Mediators are key professional actors in the process of resolving conflicts. Scenarios range from two-party disputes to complex social conflicts, which include many parties and multiple interest groups. The work of mediators entails exploring the web of interconnected interests, activities, and stakeholders to work towards common goals. These webs consist of complex dynamics that can be comprehensively analyzed through a system-based approach.
