Kurve Wustrow conducts an international training for Nonviolence in the Context of War and Armed Conflict in June 10-27, 2020.
Peacebuilding, development and humanitarian interventions aim at contributing to a positive impact on the contexts within which they take place. External interventions in volatile environments thus need to be sensitive to the context. This includes the identification and mitigation of the risks of exacerbating conflict, and strengthening of opportunities to contribute to positive change. Working in volatile and potentially quickly changing contexts requires organizations and their interventions to be adaptive and flexible.

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. The renewed attention to conflict prevention thus comes as no surprise, not only to prevent human suffering but also in light of cost-benefit-calculations: investing in prevention is more sensible than post-conflict reconstruction.
What do we mean by 'radicalization' processes and how do they influence peace and conflict in todays’ world? Critically discuss the concept and explore its implications for peacebuilding practice.
States of fragility are of major concern to actors spanning from local citizens to global policy makers. Not only are they particularly prone to violent conflict, they are also held responsible for a range of public bads transcending national borders. While ‘fragility’ is pervasive in donor and aid organizations’ thinking, the concept remains unclear and fuels the debate on how the international community should best respond. This course focuses on the conceptual, policy and implementation challenges of statebuilding in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.
