  • Analysis concerning effects of the civil societies in north by Conflict-incompatible planning and development in the south.
  • Analysis of a snapshot of the conflict consciousness in the developing-political work of information and educational work in Germany.
  • To demonstrate Best-Practice projects from the inland and outland to stimulate conceptual advancement of single educational offers.

    Project description:

    Eight of ten worldwide poorest countries suffer or have suffered from wide forcible conflicts. Furthermore wars in developing countries leave heavy human, economic and social costs and are one of the main causes for poverty, misery and underdevelopment. Therefore the consequences of civil wars are mostly not carried by the causers but by the innocent, future inhabitants, children and women.

    According to Canadian Internationally institute of Applied Negotiation (CIIAN), conflict sensitivity serves in the development cooperation at a high level to diminish violent conflicts or to minimize the potential of forcible conflicts, as well as to raise the effectiveness of the help work. Development cooperation without conflict delicacy can serve even mistakenly to promote conflicts and to cause more damage at the end than to be useful.

    CIIAN explains that the planning must be carried out by development projects as a process in which certain problems are identified, the causal connections must be analyzed, and solutions must be developed and implemented as a project / program with goals, measures and indicators. Indeed, conflict-sensitive planning must be guaranteed as an additional component (conflict analysis of the actors, causes, profile and dynamism in a certain context) as an aim, so that the project or program does not serve mistakenly to raise the likelihood of forcible conflicts, but to diminish the potential of conflicts or eliminate existing ones.

    Conflicts are visible not only in the third world aid policy, but also in the inland developing-political educational work.

    The project is as a contribution to the UN decade „education for sustainable development“.

    It serves as a component of the necessary sustainable strategies worldwide, as well as of the arising social, educational policies and pedagogical challenges and chances.
