Certificate Course in Interfaith Conflict Resolution

http://www.usip.org/training/online/interfaith.html

 Religion is frequently cited as a cause of violent conflict, yet dialogue  between faith communities often reveals that religion is not a primary source of tension. Moreover, faith-based approaches to peacemaking can be invaluable in promoting understanding and reconciliation.
This course is designed to enhance the peacemaking capacities of individuals and faith-based organizations by focusing on objectives methods, and best practices of interfaith dialogue, a form of religious peacemaking increasingly recognized for its relevance to 21st Century conflict. The course also examines the roles that faith leaders can play as third parties in peacemaking efforts. The course applies general principles of faith-based peacemaking to two case studies, highlighting interfaith peacemaking efforts between Christians and Muslims in Nigeria, as well as the role that various faith communities played in helping to bring and end to the 36-year internal armed conflict in Guatemala.
