3 Month Research Program from the Institute for Peace and Dialogue
With several frozen or ongoing conflicts between or within states and people, all efforts towards a peaceful co-existence must be harnessed. Moreover, given the rapid changes with regards to conflict dynamics, particularly those within the field of conflict studies, it is imperative that one remain abreast with the latest developments. Conflicts differ depending on the context, each facing its own unique challenges.
Existing conflicts weaken every kind of cooperation between nations, states, companies and organisations. Without mutual cooperation and understanding, the future prosperity of the world and communities remains a pipe dream. Through consideration of peaceful behaviour and engagements, we can make decisions based on the belief that opportunities for conflict resolution are possible.
The main goal of the 3 Month Research Program is to develop the skills of researchers via academic trainings, reading materials, and supervisor guidance and to closely acquaint them with relevant state, public and private institutions within Switzerland.
