During the month of November, I had the pleasure of helping facilitate a United States Institute of Peace online course on conflict analysis. Throughout the month the main instructors in the course, Jeff Helsing and Matt Levinger, gave learners a look into some of the basic principles of conducting a conflict analysis and the various frameworks that aid individuals and organizations in doing this work. We interviewed several amazing peacebuilders on the Peace Frequency podcast and heard them share how their experiences in the field have shaped their understanding of conducting an effective conflict analysis.
