Recorded Webinar: Experiential Approaches to Peacebuilding


Bruce Dayton, John Ungerleider and Tatsushi Arai | School for International Training – TRANSCEND Media Service

Research and experience suggest that experiential methods of learning and relationship-building, when facilitated carefully, can generate positive impact on conflict parties’ attitudes, behaviors, and future outlooks. Led by three scholar-practitioners with extensive experience in the field, this webinar explores the role of experiential learning in the transformation of social conflict. It also presents real-world examples of experiential learning for peacebuilding. These examples include leadership and dialogue programs for youth from diverse conflict-affected societies, professional capacity-building for civil society practitioners, and a skillful use of ceremonies and symbols in multi-track peacemaking. There is an interactive question and answer session with participants at the end.
