Practitioner-Training: Anti-bias and social inclusion
24.10. - 28.10.
Peace Work aims at establishing and nurturing inclusive societies that provide equal access to social, political and economic resources to all—irrespective of their ethnic origin, age, gender, physical or mental condition, religious background, sexual orientation, etc. The training introduces the concepts of Anti-Bias and Social Inclusion. It aims at strengthening respect for diversity and creating awareness for discrimination and social exclusion. Participants will reflect on how they themselves are involved and/or affected by the social/global power relations. They will learn how to initiate processes of prejudice awareness that motivate and equip individuals, groups and institutions to critically confront their discriminatory attitudes and actions, and thus develop sustainable empowering structures.
Participants are able
• to reflect upon and express their own role in processesof exclusion and inclusion at personal, interpersonal and structural levels in a global context
• to critically reflect on the role of prejudices, power inequalities and ideologies in peace work and to begin to develop strategies to counter their negative effects
• to explain and build upon the anti-bias and social inclusion approach in their own work context
