Teaching and Training

Use TFF Associates

TFF combines its research and field experiences with teaching, lecturing and training.

We all have multi-year experience at addressing academic audiences, civil society, the media, schools, labour unions, demonstrating citizens and - well, virtually all kinds of people.

The great majority of TFF Associates are also teachers and lecturers. If you are interested in finding resource persons for your institution, a training program, panel discussion or conference, TFF can help you identify those who will fit your needs. Here is an example:

You may simply write to us.

If your theme is, say, the Middle East, Burundi, the Balkans or integration issues in Sweden, go to these sections and see our resource persons one-by-one.

Our Associates also cover all the themes in Resource - Learn and Inspire. Just click and see the wealth of themes under Treasures and see who is writing on what. Or go to Nonviolence, Reconciliation and EU conflict- management.

Or you may like to engage one of our regular columnists - Jonathan Power, Vicky Rossi or Jan Oberg.

TFF offers anything from single lectures to week-long seminars from advanced theories and concepts to practical skills.

We have been teaching and training where there is peace and in the midst of war.

We put together teaching and training teams that suit the needs of the organizers and the participants.

Organisations everywhere are now aware that handling conflicts, their own and those of others, is a matter of professionalism.

Cutting-edge research and field experience is imperative for transmitting our philosophy, concepts and skills.

As an institution, TFF has now had 20 years of experience in providing teaching and training - many of our Associates many more years.
