The Engaging Conflict Summer School is designed to equip committed students, early-career researchers and professionals with advanced tools to critically understand conflict and tackle it as a dynamic reality. Engaging Conflict’s faculty draws from a unique spectrum of expertise to train a select group of participants in assessing the complexity of conflict and post-conflict scenarios, and evaluating the relevance and impact of different policy choices or normative standings, from non-intervention to conflict prevention.
In 2017, the Summer School will welcome the following faculty members: Mats Berdal (King’s College London), Christopher Coker (London School of Economics), Juan Diaz-Prinz (MediatEUr), Elise Feron (University of Tampere), Kieran Mitton (King’s College London), Alpaslan Ozerdem (Coventry University), Timo Smit (SIPRI) and Birte Vogel (University of Manchester).
Classes are limited to 25 participants, English proficiency is required, and international applications are welcome. Ideal candidates have a basic understanding of conflict-related issues.
Applications are open as from March 20th until May 7th (12pm, CEST). More information is available at www.engagingconflict.it
