Professional Certificate in Conflict Resolution, Transformation and Peacebuilding

Whilst I was perusing the internet in late March searching for reputable courses in Conflict Resolution, I came across a five day course which is due to be held in London from the 9th - 13th May 2016 entitled "Professional Certificate in Conflict Resolution, Transformation and Peacebuilding".  This is one of a number of worthwhile courses on offer at the International Centre for Parliamentary Studies (ICPS).  Unfortunately, as much as I would have liked, I will not be able to attend this course.  However, I did want to write a blog post about it in order to inform the international readership of my blog which currently stands at visitors from 187 countries around the world.  My hope is to raise awareness of this course by using my blog as a platform to disseminate information.  If more people were to attend courses such as these then perhaps we would have less conflict in the world and more willingness to compromise, to choose diplomacy instead of conflict and to show greater tolerance and understanding towards one another.
