Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Civilian Peacebuilding Essentials
What impact does peacebuilding have? What are the challenges involved in working in fragile contexts? How do gender roles change during a conflict and what implications does this have? How and at what point can mediation work help to defuse conflicts? How can a society come to terms with the most serious human rights violations and infringements of international humanitarian law? How can a “war economy” be transformed into an economic system that is conducive to peace?
These questions lie at the heart of the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Civilian Peacebuilding Essentials. Over a total of 22 days (once a month on a Friday/Saturday), this further training course, which is designed to be undertaken alongside professional work, gives participants a chance to update their knowledge of selected areas of civilian peacebuilding and provides training in practical methods. The course is designed for practitioners and academics interested in bridging their own experiences with current conceptual insights and practical knowledge on civilian peacebuilding.
The CAS course will be held from September 2017 to August 2018 and is a module of the Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Civilian Peacebuilding offered by swisspeace and the University of Basel
