Conflict Management and Conflict Transformation - SLE Training

Date: 2-6 September, 2024

9.00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m. CEST (Central European Summer Time)

In-person @ SLE, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin


Conflict management and conflict transformation are core issues of development work. Development projects are not only affected by conflict, but also run the risk of aggravating existing conflicts in a particular region or even triggering new conflicts.
This training course gives a sound understanding of the phenomenon of conflict, which we will explore on the personal and interpersonal level, as well as on the level of large groups and societies.


By the end of the course you will be familiar with the principles of conflict management and conflict transformation. You will have substantially broadened your horizon on the issue of conflict and applied tools to understand its mechanisms and work with it in a non-violent way.
