The PCTR Programme is implemented in affiliation with the Peace Operation Training Institute’s Certificate of Training in United Nations Peace Support Operations (COTIPSO).

The programme has been acclaimed by policy makers and practitioners from national and international organizations, the United Nations and governments as one of the best programs of its kind in the world. Through prior communication with participating organizations, governments and individuals, the program is customized to meet the specific needs of each group and to address the key issues and concerns they are facing in their work and contexts.

Bringing together experienced practitioners and policy makers from governments, the United Nations, regional organizations (EU, AU, OAS, ASEAN), and national and international organisations and agencies, the program provides a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and practical learning together with those working in conflict situations world-wide. One of the best evaluated programs in the field internationally, the PCTR is also unique in addressing all three phases of violence and war – before, during and after – based on practical operational experiences.

The PCTR program is a five-day intensive training which provides middle and senior-level experts with a forum for reflection and professional development in a dynamic and stimulating environment.  Given the issues it addresses, it is also relevant for those working in political, gender, security, human rights, development, and humanitarian fields, donors, and diplomats, working in areas affected or threatened by war and armed conflict or in post-war situations.

The PCTR draws upon a global experience base, systematically weaving together key operational and policy lessons identified and good practices. The direct, needs-based, skills and knowledge intensive approach of the PCTR is particularly relevant for senior and executive field staff and leadership in governments and organisations as well as mid-range staff and field practitioners in national and international aid and development organisations. The program’s focus on practical experiences, skills which can be used in the field, and modules on systemic peacebuilding, early warning, conflict intelligence, and applied peacebuilding methodologies, have received strong and positive feed-back from participants, both during the program and years later. Participants include: senior experts, field staff working in areas affected by violent conflict and war and in post-war situations, international diplomats, national and local level politicians in countries affected by war and conflict or with portfolios responsible for issues dealing with peacebuilding, conflict transformation, and development policies, policy makers, UN staff and heads of missions, people involved in grass-roots and community-based peacebuilding, and practitioners of conflict transformation and mediation.
