The Hague Academy for Local Governance is organizing the training course on “Peacebuilding and Local Governance” in The Hague from 27 May – 7 June, 2013. The training course will provide information on: How should central and local government relations be shaped? How can basic services be delivered and economic opportunities be created in a conflict sensitive manner? We will distil lessons from cases in countries and regions such as Afghanistan, Sudan and the Balkans and discuss issues such as starting points for projects, timing, geography and the impact of our programmes on peace and stability.
This course will help you to:
- analyse the state of local governments and the local political economy in fragile countries;
- design and implement initiatives aimed at strengthening local governments;
- judge the impact of local governance and decentralisation on realising a sustainable peace and building state legitimacy;
- cooperate and coordinate with local governments, the private sector, NGOs and other stakeholders.
This training is designed for staff of bilateral donors, multilateral agencies and NGOs, and civil servants working for ministries and local governments, who wish to be well-informed about the local dimensions of peacebuilding in fragile states.
After successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate of The Hague Academy for Local Governance. To know more about this training, visit this link.
This is a paid course programme; however, there is an opportunity for participants from select countries to apply for the NFP (Nuffic) Fellowship to attend this training programme. To know more about this fellowship and how to apply for it, visit this link.
