Today I want to promote a little bit my current course at the uni, as it is absolutely great! For the second period of Spring semester I have chosen “Methods on Conflict Resolution and Case Studies”, and I didn’t regret of that even for a second.
Our main teacher is the UN Fellow at the Peacekeeping Training Programme of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) where he is developing courses in Conflict Analysis for peace operations personnel. Other teachers also very interesting and rather famous in their fields: Jørgen Johansen is a freelance lecturer in conflict studies, a nonviolent trainer, and activist with experiences of 100+ countries in the last 40 years, also Stellan Vinthagen, which is taking part in organization of Gaza Flotilla Raid (an extremely interesting initiative, to read more:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaza_flotilla_raid), and some other great teachers.
so, if you have possibility to choose this subject for the next semester – do it! absolutely worth it!
