IPT Master Class on Interactive Conflict Transformation in Nepal

IPT on tour - Nepal. 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 interactive peacebuilding-processes and conflict transformation in complex constellations. Participants will develop theoretical skills and practical knowledge in adapting and applying their learnings in different environments and societal levels – for example as inside mediators, as third party, learning companions, community workers or when engaging with potential veto groups.


Dates: 14th-24th of September 2020
Application Deadline: 15th of May 2020
Application Deadline of self-funded Participants can be considered after the Deadline.


Set in the beautiful Godavari Village Resort close to Kathmandu, this course invites professionals working in fragile contexts, researchers, educators, social- and community workers, mediators, dialogue facilitators and more operating in contexts affected by conflict and violence. In an international and interdisciplinary group-setting, participants acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills in interactive conflict transformation together with guidance and support to adapt and apply the learnings in their respective environment. Participants further have the opportunity to engage in sharing of best practices, lessons learned and strategies to respond to challenges and opportunities in the field. This will be complemented by techniques fostering self- and collective-care and awareness.


Participants will:

  • Understand the difference between concepts, such as conflict management, conflict resolution, conflict transformation, dialogue, mediation, negotiation and facilitation
  • Learn to 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
  • Acquire strategies on how to deal with dynamics of exclusion and stigmatisation, as well as power asymmetries in conflict constellations
  • Gain knowledge and skills to strengthen well-being, reflection and awareness on one’s own conflict behaviour and to engage with conflicts as opportunities for change, rather than destruction.


Course Fees for Nepali Participants: 1450 EUR
Course Fees for International Participants: 1650 EUR
A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available!


This includes tuition fee, course materials, shuttle to and from the airport, as well as full-board accommodation, coffee breaks and a guided tour through Patan, Kathmandu. Daily Yoga- and Meditation-Classes will be further available to participants free of charge.
