CRISP e.V. invites you to a weekend workshop on Conflict Transformation in Berlin as a follow-up to a workshop on Do No Harm and postcolonial perspectives on the humanitarian sector. It is primarily aimed at staff from NGOs in Germany who are active in development/humanitarian that are involved in countries of the former Warsaw Pact and want to improve the quality of their work by applying principles and tools of conflict transformation.
After a short recap of the Do No Harm approach and complementary decolonial perspectives, we will introduce the concept of conflict transformation as well as a selection of conflict analysis tools. The heart of the workshop is the application of fundamentals of conflict transformation, conflict analysis tools and other learned concepts in an interactive simulation game. By actively engaging in the simulation, the participants will test their knowledge and skills while facing the challenge to initiate decision-making processes on their own responsibility. Such an approach visualizes unconscious behavior and thinking patterns while consciously strengthening the participants‘ ability to act and enhances the capability to actively integrate principles of conflict sensitivity.
The workshop aims at increasing awareness for the communication with local partners on eye level and preparing participants for their work in conflict-sensitive settings by conveying basic principles of conflict transformation as well as conflict analysis tools and stress resilience.
Target group: The seminar is primarily aimed at staff from NGOs in Germany. However, participation in the workshop is also open to practitioners from public institutions and think tanks dealing with implementing development cooperation on the ground and students targeting a career in the development/humanitarian sector.
Language: The workshop will be held in English language
