IPT Core Course for Peace Builders

The IPT core course aims at providing participants with the basic knowledge and skills required in post-conflict and crisis areas.

All the modules should enhance desirable personal attitudes, stress the importance of active involvement in the host society, and promote a reflective and critical approach.  The core course gives basic understanding of major functional tasks in the field as well as of the goals and approaches of actors involved. Participants also get acquainted with various field-work techniques. Modules include peace building, cultural awareness, cross-cultural communication, conflict analysis, methods of third party intervention, mediation, human rights, democratisation, organised crime, personal safety, mine awareness, first aid, gender and peace building, stress management, and working with trauma. Practical exercises include a workshop on project management and working with the media, map reading, navigation, 4x4 drive training, a mine trail, a complex simulation exercise held outdoors, and multiple case studies. Scholarships for participants from non-OSCE states available - deadline January 22!
