Ensuring conflict sensitivity and prevention and sustaining peace

Preventing the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of conflict is a hugely ambitious task, requiring strengthened capacities to conduct structured conflict analyses that provide insights into the causes and consequences of conflict, the needs and interests of diverse stakeholders, as well as the dynamics supporting or undermining peace efforts. This tutored online programme introduces the core elements and principles of conflict analysis and explores some of the main analytical tools that can help ensure conflict-sensitive work and, whenever possible, contributes to preventing conflict and sustaining peace. This programme is open to UN staff as well as practitioners and representatives from governments, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society and academia.
