The Institute for the Study of International Development (ISID) at McGill University is offering an executive education certificate program in "Reconciliation, Conflict Prevention and the Promotion of More Inclusive Societies" from October 26 to October 30, 2015. The program is designed to challenge participants to think critically about the role they can play in building societies that embrace difference and forge a path forward that is representative of diverse views. Central to the program is the understanding that renewed relationships, based on dialogue, mutual respect and understanding, are key to achieving long-term reconciliation and conflict prevention.

The program aims to provide:

  • An introduction to the challenges that different communities face locally and internationally in reconciling past injustices and perennial issues;
  • The skills and resources needed to effectively engage with reconciliation debates and practice conflict prevention;
  • The tools and strategies required to promote a more inclusive environment within the participants' respective organizations.

The program is intended for professionals who work in the private and public sectors, including those who work for international organizations and consulting companies, nongovernmental organizations, and community organizations.
