Conflict – and especially violent conflict – is common in many parts of the world. Violent conflict not only hinders human development and security, it also reverses many of the gains that society may have achieved over many years. Taking action before conflict has become violent is generally more effective than taking action during violent confl ict. But to prevent the development of violent conflict means addressing the underlying causes – both immediate and structural. This course is designed to enable participants to develop effective conflict prevention strategies that can allow constructive dialogue between contending views without the need to resort to the use of violence. This course was originally developed by Fahamu for the UN High Commission for Human Rights and the UN System Staff College. It is designed to strengthen the capacity of national human rights institutions to engage in confl ict prevention, including early warning. It is suitable for the staff of human rights and social justice organisations working to prevent conflict.
