This month we are extremely pleased to offer you an on-line course in peacebuilding skills together with an introductory article by our Australian colleague Biannca Pace.

Our heartfelt thanks to both the Australian Network of Conflict Resolution for the course and our colleague Biannca Pace.

Conflict is all around us, it is not something we can choose to have or not to have. It just is. This course is not about avoiding conflict. Avoiding is not only impossible but undesirable.

This course is about discovering productive ways of handling conflict. Ways that make a difference in all areas of our lives.

To resolve conflict and BUILD PEACE it is helpful to have a series of skills for interacting with others to create the basis for a mutually empowering dialogue.
