Teaching Peace and Conflict Studies
In the Winter Term, I taught two Courses in Peace and Conflict Studies. One very small, with three students from the Unites States at Studienforum Berlin, and one quite big with about 80 students at Rhein-Waal University, Kleve. In my classes I tried to give insight into practices of peacebuilding and peace pedagogy, using materials from actual projects, such as Peace Counts. We also discussed Methods like Mediation and Dialogue, Basics of Conflict Analysis and Do No Harm.
One Highlight were the poster presentations at the end of the Course in Kleve.
