Description

Working in highly dynamic and volatile contexts poses a number of specific challenges for development, humanitarian and peacebuilding organizations as well as for business actors. Over the past years, normative frameworks for working in fragile and conflict-affected contexts have been developed: The OECD/DAC’s 10 principles for good international engagement in fragile states and situations constitute a widely accepted point of reference. The World Bank’s World Development Report ‘Conflict, Security and Development’ and the signing of the New Deal in 2011 added to the internationally accepted call for a new, adapted work approach for engagement in fragile states. Organizations are asked to review and adapt their approaches on the policy, institutional, strategic and program level.
This course explores what it means to work in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, what it needs and how it could be done. It provides an overview of current discourses, gives policy guidance and familiarizes participants with the concepts and application of ‘conflict and context sensitivity’. Participants will be sensitized to key issues to be considered when working in conflict-affected and fragile contexts and will receive hands-on experience in the use of models and tools of conflict-sensitive program management.

Facilitators: Sabina Handschin and Nadina Diday , KOFF
Workload: 3 course days, individual study, 1.5 ECTS points (42 working hours)
