These look very interesting, thanks for posting! Quick question, is the Better Design for Peacebuilding the same course as Understanding Violence from Emory? If not, who is hosting the Better Design for Peacebuilding course? Thanks!

This is great stuff! I had the same question about the Better Design for Peacebuilding course; in fact I can't find many of the above courses on Coursera either...

My recommendation from the list above: Resilience in Children exposed to Trauma, Disaster and War on Coursera!

Two tips to add to the list: JPAL Evaluation Social Programs on EdX if you are interested in learning everything about Randomised Control Trials. And The Age of Sustainable Development from Jeffrey Sachs on Coursera.

What's the best course to learn the principles of MEL for Peace Building?

Thanks for sharing this list. Here are a couple more free online courses that you can find on Udemy:
