TRAINING: Course on Land, Property and Conflict
the US Institute of Peace (USIP) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) will organize their fourth Course on Land, Property and Conflict from 21 to 24 May at the USIP Headquarters in Washington DC.
The course is intended to provide policymakers and practitioners with analytical tools for assessing and addressing an array of complex land and property disputes, from competing ownership claims and restitution to customary land rights and illegal urban settlements. The prime target audience are professionals with past and/or ongoing experience in peace building and/or post-crisis recovery and transition.
In the past, participants came from national governments and institutions; UN agencies and the World Bank; and national and international NGOs. The number of participants is limited to 25 so as to ensure an effective learning environment. Trainers are experienced practitioners from the US Institute of Peace, the World Bank and IOM, with additional speakers from other international organizations and NGOs.
