We built the skills of  student leaders in conflict transformation, negotiation, and mediation, following the Nagorno-Karabakh War with Armenia. We have also built the capacity of non-governmental organizations to manage community and organizational conflicts.

Conflict Management Workshops (2004)

Karuna Center led workshops on conflict management both for the staff of Catholic Relief Services in Azerbaijan and for their NGO partners, who came from Baku as well as outlying regions and whose missions varied from human rights education to agricultural development. The workshops offered a general introduction to conflict analysis and intervention, and focused on the management of both community-based and organizational conflicts.

Transforming Conflict and Building Peace (1999)

Karuna Center led a training for student leaders focusing on transforming conflict and building peace. Following a brief introduction of some key concepts of conflict transformation, students had the opportunity to practice and role-play conflict interventions such as negotiation and mediation. The workshop engaged students in a variety of learning activities, group work, reflections, and discussions.
