Peace and its many aspects

Better trained and more serious

As any reader of this blog would know, I find the increasing number of training programs related to peace and conflict resolution to be a very positive sign.  After all, if we want peace we need to learn how to get it (it is not, apparently, adequately taught in most schools yet).  Here is one that looks very good.  It is both timely and has quality people and subjects.

“Courses in Advanced Mediation (3-5 Oct) and Conflict Prevention/Early Warning (6-7 Oct)

Engi is holding two courses in London in early October with the renowned Peace Action, Training and Research Institute of Romania (PATRIR).

One focuses on dialogue, mediation and peace processes; the other on conflict intelligence, early warning and conflict prevention.

We think one or both of these courses would be of great benefit to anyone involved in efforts to prevent, transform, resolve or heal/reconcile after conflict, so please click here for more information if that sounds like you. And please don’t hesitate to download the full brochures and application forms – there are generous discounts for early and multiple bookings.

There is a strictly limited number of places on each course – only 30 – and we anticipate them being filled very quickly. In the words of a participant from the UNDP:

‘I always encourage my colleagues to look into PATRIR programs, as I don’t think it gets much better.’
