Introduction to Conflict Analysis


"Conflict analysis that equips actors to identify initial instances of institutional dysfunction within the security sector, will ultimately lead them to recognise the centrality of security sector governance."

The aim of this course is to provide participants with knowledge of conflict analysis principles and skills tailored to the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia. It addresses the causes of, and actors involved in conflict, the evolution of conflict, and various aspects pertaining to conflict analysis. 

The course consists of five lessons:
1.    Analysing the Causes of Conflict
2.    Conflict Analysis Tools
3.    Identifying Conflict Actors
4.    Evolution of Conflict
5.    Devising Interventions in Conflict Affected Areas

After completing the course, the participants will be able to analyse conflict by using various practical tools, distinguish potential and existing conflict causes as well as possible factors contributing to peace; identify the direct or indirect role played by conflict actors engaged in or that are affected by conflict; identify the stages of conflicts; evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of various conflict analysis tools.

Participants will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
