Stimulated by original expert materials developed jointly by UNOY and Search for Common Ground, you will be introduced to core concepts of violence, conflict and peace.

Address questions like, is peace possible? What forms does violence take? What is the Youth, Peace and Security
agenda? What tools are used in conflict transformation?
