 ABOUT

Reflecting on Peace Practice (RPP) II is an intensive 5-day course, with a focus on systems approaches to peacebuilding. While there will be a recap of basic RPP concepts and tools during this course, the focus is on systems approaches to conflict analysis and peacebuilding strategy. This includes practicing conflict analysis from a systems perspective, identifying points of leverage to create change in a conflict system, as well as designing theories of change and programmatic strategies for intervention. The workshop is very interactive, with many opportunities to practice the application of RPP tools from a systems point of view.

 FACILITATORS

Course facilitators are two seasoned RPP practitioners, Diana Chigas and Dr. Cordula Reimann. 

Diana Chigas is Co-Director of Collaborative Learning at CDA. She has worked as a facilitator, trainer, advisor, researcher and evaluator in negotiation and conflict resolution for over 25 years, including leading CDA’s program to promote and learn from utilization of the RPP findings and tools since 2003. Diana has worked with intergovernmental agencies, NGOs and donors on systemic conflict analysis and on effectiveness of peacebuilding programming, and most recently has contributed to guidance for DFID and USAID on theories of change and to USAID’s conflict assessment framework.

Dr. Cordula Reimann, head and founder of core, has worked as consultant, facilitator, trainer, researcher and lecturer in peacebuilding and conflict transformation for nearly 20 years. She has worked for different international and Swiss governmental agencies and NGOs. In 2011 Cordula set up her own consultancy, coaching and training business called “core”.

WHO SHOULD APPLY 

We are looking for participants who have a keen interest in applying a systems perspective to peacebuilding, from a conflict analysis and strategy, and program design perspective. CDA encourages applications from those who play a mid-to senior level technical, managerial, or policy role in designing and implementing peace initiatives within their organizations or those who advise and support partners in this area.

REQUIREMENTS 

Fluency in English. Familiarity with basic RPP approaches and tools. Experience with using tools for conducting conflict analysis.
