Introduction to Conflict Course
Written by Marshall Steph Wednesday, 15 May 2013 14:52
The Stabilisation Unit announces the Introduction to Conflict Course running 18-19 June.
The Stabilisation Unit is offering the opportunity for HMG staff to attend a two day introduction to Conflict course. This course has been designed to give a basic knowledge and understanding of the key concepts, policies and approaches which informs HMG’s work to address conflict.
Course Aims and Objectives:
The aim of the Introduction to Conflict Course is to provide those about to start, or already in conflict-related HMG posts with an introduction to conflict theory, international and HMG conflict architecture, policy and practice. By the end of the course participants should understand how their work on conflict fits within a broader international and HMG policy framework and how they can potentially strengthen the positive impact of their work through knowledge of key conflict principles and approaches.
- To equip HMG staff working on conflict with a basic understanding of key conflict concepts, architecture, policy, best practice principles and approaches; and
- To strengthen cross-departmental understanding, including of the roles and contribution of each department in operationalizing HMG’s ‘integrated approach’ to working in conflict.
Who is the course for?
This course is for those whose work requires a basic understanding of how HMG works in and on conflict affected countries and the theory and learning that underpins this. This course prioritises attendance by relevant staff from DFID, MOD, FCO and the SU although a small number of places will be available for other government staff (such as the Cabinet Office) whose work requires this training.
A draft programme is available attached.
Course Delivery Style
Based on and informed by the previous conflict and stabilisation courses run by the FCO (with International Alert) and the Stabilisation Unit, the course will be delivered in an interactive and dynamic style by practitioners from DFID, FCO, MOD and the SU, with support from external experts.
18-19 June 2013.
