Jump to Comments


The Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding of the United States Institute of Peace offers onsite, online and customized courses on conflict prevention, management, and resolution. The Academy’s practitioner-oriented courses, held at the USIP headquarters in Washington and elsewhere, prepare professionals for work in and on conflict zones. Courses include:

  • Negotiation, Mediation, Conflict Analysis, and Advising and Mentoring
  • Rule of Law, Islamic Law, and Transforming Security Forces
  • Gender and Peacebuilding, Economics and Conflict, and Rebuilding Social Sectors

The knowledge and skills imparted in the Academy’s courses are based on lessons learned and best practices from the field. Instructors include people who have firsthand experience in conflict zones. Class sizes are small and participants interact with highly skilled senior practitioners. The courses, which attract participants from a range of backgrounds, impart specific skills through case studies, simulations, and small group exercises. Here is the link to the 2013 course catalog.
