Descrizione della formazione

The media often reports about religiously motivated acts of violence. At the same time, throughout history, religions repeatedly contributed to peacebuilding. In the CAS Religion, Peace & Conflict you will reflect upon these ambivalences with experts from academia and practice and look into concrete case studies and peacebuilding approaches relating to religion.

Your benefits:

  • Learn about concrete methods of conflict analysis and discuss which roles religiously motivated actors play in conflict contexts
  • Get an overview of key terms and concepts regarding religion and explore ways in which religions can drive conflict and promote peace
  • Study conflicts with a religious dimension through case studies and learn about different peacebuilding approaches to transform these conflicts
  • Unpack contested notions such as „radicalization“ and „extremism”
  • Exchange experiences and become part of a community of practice

Our on-site and virtual courses are taught by highly experienced experts from different contexts and provide a platform for learning, reflection, and exchange among accomplished professionals and people who aspire to develop a career in peacebuilding.

Piano di formazione

The Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) Religion, Peace & Conflict is offered annually and runs from fall to fall.
