CONFLICT RESOLUTION SEMINAR SERIES SPRING 2018
As a field, conflict analysis and resolution brings together both theoretical discussions about conflicts, their analysis, and resolution processes (and practical implementation). Therefore, in order to focus on skills development in conflict analysis and resolution, one should concentrate and concern both theory and practice. As graduates of this field, we develop, apply, monitor and evaluate projects and training programs in the field of conflict analysis, resolution, social mediation, social cohesion, peace education and peace journalism with Turkish and foreign audience, and participants from around the world.
