swisspeace course: Dealing with the Past & Conflict Transformation (on-site, 5 days)

Continuing education course

Finding a way to deal with a violent past following events such as armed conflict, the end of an authoritarian regime or occupation, as well as the legacy of a colonial rule, is often argued to be the basis for lasting peace, democracy and rule of law. International advocacy networks, norms and legal frameworks support national and local actors in the design of mechanisms and processes, such as truth commissions, tribunals, or memorialization efforts. The interactions of these actors shape whether or not a particular dealing with the past process succeeds in being locally relevant and effective. Other important aspects are inclusion, participation, and consultation in dealing with the past processes, including the role of the diaspora. This course examines the potentials and challenges for the design and implementation of dealing with the past processes. Engaging with key debates in the field, it focuses on how to ensure that dealing with the past processes support the transformation of violent conflicts.
