CAS Religion, Peace & Conflict

LocationBasel, North West Switzerland, Switzerland

The media often reports about religiously motivated acts of violence. At the same time, throughout history, religions repeatedly contributed to peacebuilding. In the CAS Religion, Peace & Conflict you will reflect upon these ambivalences with experts from academia and practice and look into concrete case studies and peacebuilding approaches relating to religion.

Our on-site and virtual courses are taught by highly experienced experts from different contexts and provide a platform for learning, reflection, and exchange among accomplished professionals and people who aspire to develop a career in peacebuilding.
