Master Class on Dialogue Methods for Peacebuilding - with Han Verhoeven & Henk van Apeldoorn

The objective of this IPT Master Class is to support the development of democratic and stabilized societies through preparing participants for designing and facilitating dialogues of small and large groups with conflicting interests.
We live in times of constant changes. Enormous societal and environmental complex challenges lead to conflict at different levels. Can we improve in dialogue methodology to avoid escalation into violence? Henk and Han worked with non-violent ways of solving conflicts, in widely different contexts. Ranging from interreligious dialogue in Nigeria to conflicts over basic resources like water in Puntland & Somaliland. In Eastern Africa, they worked with youth and the temptations to resort to violence in a future with narrowing options and lack of inclusion. How to ensure that young voices are heard by deciders? Can we find ways to make rural voices audible in the capital?
Even in fragile states a mix of traditional and modern dialogue and mediation methods can prevent escalation towards violence.
