This practice based workshop employs participant-based, interactive and process oriented individual, partner and group exercises. It also involves replaying and feedback of video sequences of participants’ exercises and role plays, recorded live during the workshop. If time permits, further Scenarios and Role-plays also could be developed and implemented.

At the end of the workshop participants should be able to
The participants will, thereby, also receive valuable references to literature regarding conflict resolution and online resources to governmental and non governmental initiatives involved in international conflict resolution.
