Dealing with the Past Course

The Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) is organizing the Dealing with the Past: An Advanced Course for Policy-makers and Professionals in cooperation with swisspeace.

The DwP Course addresses a range of topics which are central to the development of a holistic approach to Dealing with the Past (DwP) and to the implementation of relevant mechanisms for dealing with prior and on-going grave human rights violations. Special attention is paid to case studies, to a gender based approach, to the need to integrate DwP in the negotiation of peace agreements, as well as in the post conflict efforts.

The DwP Course 2017 will take place from 4 - 12 July 2017 in Switzerland.
