The INCORE Summer School provides a structured learning opportunity to
analyse the dynamic and constantly changing field of conflict resolution and
peacebuilding. Focusing on the latest research and concepts in peace and
conflict studies and practice; participants are invited to compare, contrast
and learn from different perspectives. The School offers a unique
opportunity to create links between theory, practice and policy. Special
attention is given to how the experience and research of both practitioners
and academics can impact upon policy makers within the field of conflict
resolution, peacemaking, peacebuilding and reconciliation.

This year we are offering three courses to choose from:

* Peacemaking and Peacebuilding: Exploring Lessons from Northern Ireland

This course provides a unique opportunity to examine the trends,
opportunities and challenges the region faces in relation to addressing the
causes and consequences of conflict and to ensure its non-repetition.
Northern Ireland has much to share with other societies emerging from
conflict ­ both negative and positive - and this intensive focus on the
lessons emerging from a post-accord society will be of benefit to
policymakers, practitioners and academics with an interest in conflict
resolution and peacebuilding initiatives. The course will combine both
traditional lectures, guest speakers involved in
peacemaking and peacebuilding in Northern Ireland, and a case-study based
approach. The course will be facilitated by Prof Brandon Hamber and Grainne
Kelly (INCORE), and may run in two streams depending on numbers recruited.

* Evaluation in Conflict Prone Settings

The course covers the basics of conducting evaluations of initiatives,
broadly understood, in conflict-prone settings. The focus of the course is
not limited to peacebuilding initiatives, but applies to the evaluation of
the full spectrum of initiatives: development, humanitarian, private
sectors, community development, and so on. ³Conflict-prone² setting is
similarly broad in its definition in the course. It can applied community
work on interface areas of inner-cities, or it can be applied to more
conventional, protracted, militarized conflicts. The course will be
facilitated by Dr Kenneth Bush (INCORE) and Colleen Duggan (IDRC, TBC).

* Interpersonal Reconciliation after Violent Political Conflict

This course explores some of the key challenges and dynamics of
reconciliation between people who have been directly involved in and/or
affected by violent political conflict.  The focus will be on what has aptly
been described as the ³heart of deep peacemaking and cultural peacebuilding²
(Ramsbotham), on reconciliation at the interpersonal level.  The course will
be co-facilitated by former combatants and survivors of the conflict in and
about Northern Ireland, who have also become experienced reconciliation
practitioners on the islands of Ireland and Great Britain and
beyond.  The course will be facilitated by Dr Wilhelm Verwoerd (Glencree
Centre for Peace and Reconciliation) and Alistair Little (Irish Peace
Centres).

Northern Ireland Programme

Alongside these modules we also run the Northern Ireland programme to
provide participants with an opportunity to network with others, gaining a
deeper insight into into the causes and consequences of the conflict in
Northern Ireland. The Transitional Justice Institute at the University of
Ulster will be running their Summer School entitled ³Gender, Conflict and
Transition² in the same week as the INCORE Summer School
(www.transitionaljustice.ulster.ac.uk). Participants from the TJI Summer
School will join INCORE Summer School participants during the Northern
Ireland Programme and for social events.

Previous participants of the INCORE Summer School have included USAID,
European Union DG External Relations, UK Department for International
Development, World Food Programme, UN Department for Peacekeeping Operations
(DPKO) and others.
