    Introduction

    The ‘*Training of trainers in peacebuilding and conflict transformation Course’* is targeting 15 peacebuilding practitioners with an interest in deepening their knowledge and skills in peacebuilding and conflict transformation and in designing, facilitating and evaluating trainings. The five day training is divided into two parts: part one, will focus on Understanding Conflict, Conflict Analysis, Conflict Management and Peacebuilding strategies; the second part will focus on skills and knowledge required to be an effective trainer in designing, facilitating and evaluating a training programme. The first part will take 1.5 days and the last 3.5 days.

    At the end of the five days, participants are expected to have gained the most up-to-date knowledge and skills in peacebuilding relevant to African contexts. In addition, they would practice fundamental skills in conducting training in various contexts.

    Core thematic areas:

    Part One:

    1. Introduction: Understanding Conflict, Conflict analysis

    2. Theories of conflict and peace

    3. Strategies of Peacebuilding Interventions

    Part Two:

    1. Fundamentals in Adult learning

    2. Exploring the role of a facilitator/training in dynamic contexts

    3. Designing a training curriculum

    4. Facilitation skills and techniques

    5. Evaluating a training programme

    Objectives of the training

    By the end of the training, participants would have had the space and opportunity to:

    1. Deepen their understanding and knowledge of conflict, peace, conflict analysis, theories of peace and conflict;

    2. Enhance their skills and capacities in peacebuilding strategies relevant to their various contexts;

    3. Enhance their skills in peacebuilding training design, delivery and evaluation;

    Training/Learning Methodology and Approach This intensive training will utilize Adult Learning methodology, drawing from Paulo Freire and others. Participants will be required to fully contribute from their knowledge and reflections in peace, development, human rights, gender rights and humanitarian work, amongst other fields. The learning will, therefore, be experiential and will engage participants in individual tasks, group tasks, case studies, mini-lectures and role-plays and simulations, amongst others. The practical elements are designed to help the participants synthesize the learning and make it relevant to their contexts. Participants will also have the opportunity to design and do ‘actual training’ facilitation

    Introduction

    The purpose of the training will be to develop an understanding of gender and violence prevention in post-conflict transitions and how to integrate women in the peacebuilding processes. The participants will explore the various International Human Rights Instruments that support gendering human security, conflict transformation and peacebuilding. The meaning and impact of violence as experienced by women in various conflict contexts will be discussed and conflict transformation activities identified and planned to reduce the impact of all forms of violence against women in the participants’ contexts. As an addition, there will also be a session on how to integrate human security into participants projects as a strategy towards achieving reduced cases of gender based violence and increase cases of women in peacebuilding and conflict prevention.

    The Course Content

    1.Understanding violence against women: Violence is one way of dealing with conflicts (Galtung (1990, 1996) and is represented in three separate types distinguished as physical, structural or cultural. Among the issues to be looked at the training will be the escalation of violence against women in situations of violent conflicts and representing tragic development in which women are targeted in all forms of Gender Based Violence (GBV).

    2.Linking Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), Human Security and Peacebuilding: Current international standards addressing GBV in conflict and post conflict areas draw upon a wide array of provisions contained in a variety of human rights instruments that safeguard women and girls. The course will help participants identify relevant provisions in selected CEDAW articles which they can advance towards the prevention of sexual violence against women in situations of conflict.

    3.Gendering Conflict transformation around UNSCRs: In reference to grassroots based cases studies benefiting indirectly and directly from the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 (2000) and 1820 (2008), the participants will look at what these resolutions are, their various provisions, relation to women in conflict areas, and how to incorporate them in ongoing peacebuilding and reconstruction work with the participants contexts.

    4.Human security paradigm and its relevance to women violence prevention: Human security paradigm perceives the ordinary citizen including women as a purpose and not as a means to security. The training will identify and emphasize the considerations for human security as integrated approach to conflict transformation and peacebuilding.

    5.Gender Mainstreaming in peacebuilding: Women continue to be underrepresented in peacebuilding processes, be it in conflict prevention, management or post conflict reconstruction, yet research shows that where women engage in the above, violence often declines and it becomes easier to build more sustainable peace. The session will explore the various strategies that programmes/organizations can put in place to ensure effective participation and contribution of women in the processes.

      This intensive training will utilize Adult Learning methodology, drawing from Paulo Freire and others.
