Course information

Designing Peacebuilding Programmes: Improving Sustainability, Impact and Effectiveness in Peacebuilding & Peace Support Operations (DPP), 27-31 October

Designing Peacebuilding Programmes is an in-depth operational training in program development, design, planning and implementation, drawing comprehensively on best-practice approaches from peacebuilding, development and humanitarian aid, and recovery, as well as methods and approaches for strategic planning and program and organizational development. Incorporating the work of the OECD-DAC and lessons learned and approaches from national and international agencies, the DPP provides organizations and participants with methods to significantly improve the quality, relevance, and impact of their programs. Most importantly: participants engage with their actual programs and operations and use the framework of Designing Peacebuilding Programmes to learn leading methodologies while improving actual work in practice.


Developing and Applying Early Warning and Early Response Systems: Challenges and Responses, 24-28 November

This 5-day course, “Developing and Applying Early Warning and Early Response Systems: Challenges and Response” is designed to introduce the world of EW/ER in complex integrated emergency situations. The course will introduce participants to the different aspects and indicators of early warning and early response, the discussions surrounding early response, and the selection, evaluation and validation of a number of EW/ER tools.

Participants will learn to become comfortable in selecting and using appropriate analytical tools, using them correctly and accurately assessing their strengths and weaknesses in light of their individual goals. An important outcome is to focus on how early warning will work in practice.

The course is suitable for civilian, police and military United Nations and EU staff dealing with response mechanisms in times of crisis; international NGO staff; those wishing to enter a career in international development and post-conflict reconstruction; and others who have an academic or personal interest in the subject.

Making Prevention Work is a three-day intensive program designed for policy makers, diplomats, IGO, INGO and NGO staff and leading experts and practitioners to provide an operational and global overview of  key lessons learned / identified for effective prevention.

The program will look at operational, structural and systemic approaches to prevention drawing from real situations and helping to identify practical methodologies and approaches which can be of value to those working to prevent deadly conflicts and outbreaks and strengthen capacities to transform conflicts constructively. Attention will be given to developing and strengthening local, national, regional and international Infrastructure for Peace (I4P) and the necessary capabilities to make prevention work in practice.
