Full course description

Multi-Track Diplomacy and Conflict Transformation - CATOES002

This is an intensive evening program (40 hours) of experiential learning and new perspectives on ways to resolve conflict and build a lasting peace. The goal is to develop the knowledge and professional skills needed to facilitate transformation of community or societal conflicts, including ethnic, religious or cultural tensions, using techniques of multi-track diplomacy. These techniques, applicable at all levels of society, provide an essential complement to official (“first track”) diplomacy and police work, from conflicts in local communities, to political instability, terrorism or insurgent activities, as currently in our work with the Center for International Development and Conflict Management around the world.
 CATOES003 is strongly recommended as a concurrent course.

Participants will also interact simultaneously with for-credit students taking parallel courses online, who are expected to join in the face-to-face classes on campus whenever possible, to enhance experiential learning for both credit and non-credit students.
