University of Bradford; Division of Peace Studies and International Development (PSID), UK.
The Otherness Lab in this setting fuses with two MA modules, Skills for Constructive Conflict Engagement and Creative Conflict Transformation. The topics, issues and concerns of the Otherness Lab are understood as crucial in this university setting, where individuals are looking to develop their professional practice in the humanitarian sector. Creating such a space helps students and staff develop the knowledge, skills and capacities to become reflective practitioners and to embody transformative approaches to peace, justice and development.
A linked piece of evaluation and research for publication will capture learning, share valuable practice, and inform further development of this initiative.
