Engaging conflict: Prevention, management and resolution
The Engaging Conflict Summer School is designed to equip committed students, early-career researchers and professionals with advanced tools to critically understand conflict and tackle it as a dynamic reality. Engaging Conflict’s faculty draws from a unique spectrum of expertise to train a select group of participants in assessing the complexity of conflict and post-conflict scenarios, and evaluating the relevance and impact of different policy choices or normative standings, from non-intervention to conflict prevention.
The School features lectures, extensive Q&A sessions, roleplays and informal chats with some of the world’s best academics and experts sharing cutting-edge insights on their specific fields of expertise. In 2018 the School will welcome the following faculty members: Mats Berdal (King’s College London), Christopher Coker (London School of Economics), Juan Diaz-Prinz (Conflict Management Space), Elise Féron (University of Tampere), Roger Mac Ginty (Manchester University), Gearoid Millar (University of Aberdeen), and Alpaslan Özerdem (Coventry University). The School will also see the participation of practitioners from the Italian Army, the SIPRI and the UN System Staff College (UNSSC).
Participants to the program are selected through an intensive and highly competitive process, strictly based on academic merit, professional achievements and individual potential. The working language of the School is English.
Applications are accepted as from 19 March 2018 until 29 April 2018, and scholarships are available. Complete and updated information on Engaging Conflict is available at: www.engagingconflict.it.
