Master Class on Conflict Transformation

This Master Class is designed for practitioners who are interested in developing and refining their skills in transforming conflicts in complex constellations.

During this master class, participants get acquainted with the underlying philosophical approaches, theoretical concepts and practical tools for facilitating conflict transformation in complex constellations. Participants will develop skills, and practice a facilitator’s attitude to apply their knowledge in different settings (eg. as inside mediators, as third party, or when working with potential veto groups) and at different societal levels.

Participants will:

  • learn the dfiference between concepts, such as conflict management, conflict resolution, conflict transformation, dialogue, mediation, negotiation, facilitation;
  • apply tools for complex conflict analysis (actors mapping, structural power analysis, analysis of cultural meanings, needs analysis);
  • develop key competencies on how to promote, support and guide reflective 'deep dialogue' processes;
  • develop strategies on how to deal with dynamics of exclusion and stigmatisation, as well as power asymmetries in conflict constellations.
