Preventing Violent Conflicts

Training at swisspeace in Basel

Despite increased international pressure and action to prevent violent conflicts and mass atrocities after the shocks of Rwanda and Srebrenica in the 1990s, the number of armed conflicts has increased in recent years. Whilst the wars in Syria, South Sudan or Ukraine differ with respect to the actors, driving factors and dynamics, they all raise the question of how violence and its escalation could have been prevented.

Human Rights & Conflict Transformation

Training at swisspeace in Basel

Human rights and conflict transformation are instrumental for achieving sustainable peace and development. Despite wide recognition that the fields of human rights, peacebuilding and development work in and on similar contexts, they are often perceived as distinct disciplines. This training seeks to go beyond this divide and aims at exploring how human rights and conflict transformation offer different types of insights to similar contexts, and exploring how they can complement one another both practically and conceptually.

Dealing with the Past & Conflict Transformation Course

Training at swisspeace in Basel

Finding a way to deal with a violent past following events such as civil war, the end of an authoritarian regime or occupation, is often argued to be the basis for lasting peace, democracy and rule of law. International advocacy networks, norms and legal frameworks support national and local actors in the design of mechanisms and processes like truth commissions, tribunals or commemorations. The interactions of these actors shape whether a particular dealing with the past process succeeds in being locally relevant and effective.
