In 2015, the ICP Summer Academy became a Summer Academy and Forum. As a consequence of this new learning approach, experts and lecturers on the one hand, and participants on the other hand, are considered equally valuable in their contributions and inputs on peace mediation and dialogue. Both experts’ and participants’ interventions allow the entire group to assemble more knowledge and develop more creative ideas. The benefits of this common-learning approach are invaluable.
In order to perpetuate the group dynamics that takes place during the International Summer Academy and Forum and to keep alive this experts’ network, we strongly encourage the participants to come back next year to reinforce the expertise of the network.
