Transforming conflict: From personal to global change

Do you want to gain knowledge to decrease violence and conflict affecting your community? Are you interested in transitional justice and conflict prevention? Attend our summer programme at Caux in Switzerland and join over 400 alumni from all over the world.

The Caux Scholars Program (CSP) aims to enable 20 people from around the world every year to become trustbuilders in their communities through experiential education in conflict transformation and principled leadership.

We aim to further equip the participants for resolving conflicts from the communities in which they work. Through interaction with peacebuilders, scholars will leave better prepared to shape the conflicts that they work to resolve.
