For the second time, the Berghof Foundation and swisspeace jointly organise a 5-day course on National Dialogue & Peace Mediation facilitated by mediation and dialogue experts.
National Dialogue & Peace Mediation Course
29 February - 4 March 2016, Basel (Switzerland)
National Dialogues have become a promising approach to addressing and resolving the causes of violent political conflicts in an inclusive manner. They can be set up before, during or after peace negotiations and serve to provide a space to discuss issues and build trust among different segments of the population. Being nationally-led, such processes are crucial in promoting ownership, inclusivity and legitimacy. Responding to the increased interest in the topic, this course, jointly offered by swisspeace & the Berghof Foundation provides insights on how to define, design and support National Dialogue processes, training in dialogue and mediation skills and reflection on lessons that can be drawn from previous cases.
