The Summer Professional Training Program provides trainings to development workers, government officials, conflict resolution practitioners, masters students, and others working in conflict zones to complement their daily field work. It is one of the first practical training programs specifically designed to bridge the fields of peacebuilding and development.
Experienced trainers guide participants through hands-on sessions to explore the relationships between religion, culture, human rights, the media, gender, and applied theories in peacebuilding and development work. Participants explore innovative methods while expanding their knowledge and skills in a participatory and interactive learning environment.
