INCORE (International Conflict Research Institute) at the University of Ulster wishes you to invite you to the 12th International Summer School. The 2011 International Summer School will run from 13th-17th June 2011.

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 "Gender, Conflict and Transition" 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.

The INCORE Summer School is recognised by UNITAR (United Nations Institute for Training and Research) Programme of Correspondence Instruction in Peacekeeping Operations, and may form part of The Certificate-of-Training In Peace Support Operations (COTIPSO) Programme.
