Synergizing Nonviolent Action and Peacebuilding (SNAP):

Training Opportunity

 

Overview

The U.S. Institute of Peace is sponsoring five-day training workshops for Tunisian activists and peacebuilders who are eager to engage constructively and inclusively in collective efforts to advance social change, good governance, and conflict prevention in Tunisia. The training introduces core concepts of nonviolent activism, negotiation, and dialogue as well as strategic planning and coalition-building tools that trainees can use to improve the efficiency of their work and broaden their activist networks.

 

Period and length of training

Trainings will be offered in two sessions. The first training sessions will be held between December 2019 and February 2020.  The second training sessions will be held between August and November 2020.

Language

The training will be delivered in Arabic by Tunisian facilitators.

Location

Applicants may need to travel within Tunisia to attend trainings

Cost

The U.S. Institute of Peace will cover the cost of the travel and training for accepted applicants.

More About the Training

Building just, inclusive, and peaceful societies requires people who are willing and able to use a wide variety of approaches, including direct action, relationship building, volunteer mobilization, dialogue, and negotiation. However, these activities are sometimes seen as separate or incompatible. Grassroots activists may know how to engage in protests and other forms of nonviolent direct action, but they may have less experience facilitating a meeting with diverse groups and opinions. Peacebuilders may excel at dialogue or negotiation, but they may get stuck when one group has more power than another, making it difficult to reach a just resolution.

Each approach has its own history, community of practice, literature, and education and training programs. This training seeks to build bridges between peacebuilding and nonviolent action practitioners and illustrate how the most strategic and effective methods from both fields can reinforce one another. This training emphasizes practical action, and therefore training modules regularly incorporate role-playing and other hands-on activities that are drawn from real-world events involving nonviolent activism and peacebuilding.

USIP constantly strives to measure the impact of its training and technical assistance programming around the world.  As such, this training will be part of a research study that measures the impact of the SNAP training for the purposes of improving the program and for a better understanding of how learning about nonviolent action and peacebuilding can change people’s perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors toward more constructive activism. All participants will complete one pre- and post-training survey, as well as up to two rounds of follow-up surveys and one interview as part of an evaluation of the training’s impact. If you have any questions about the study, please email amat@stanford.edu and rdaoud@usip.org.
