All actors in fragile and conflict-affected situations must ensure that their interventions do not inadvertently increase existing socio-political tensions. Moreover, they should make use of any potentialities that exist to strengthen social cohesion, peace and the transition out of fragility. The conflict context must be the starting point for the planning and design of all interventions and all aspects of an organisation have to be adapted in accordance with it.
swisspeace is offering an online course on conflict sensitivity (with offline version), available in EN, FR and ES. The course is structured in 3 modules and aims to equip development, humanitarian aid and peacebuilding practitioners with the fundamental concepts of conflict sensitivity and useful tools for creative and effective application of conflict sensitivity, at program and institutional level. For conditions of access to the course please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
