PREVENTIVE DIPLOMACY RESOURCE BOOK
The Resource book brings together materials developed for the UNRCCA Preventive Diplomacy Academy training workshops. The information you will find here is divided into four parts. The first part provides background information on the history of the United Nations; preventive diplomacy; the Security Council; Youth, Peace and Security; Women, Peace and Security; gender analysis; regional cooperation in Central Asia and Afghanistan; and human rights. The second part covers “soft skills,” practical information about the tools of preventive diplomacy. These include ways to manage conflict; differences and equality; inter-cultural communication; overcoming prejudices and stereotypes; leadership; and time management. The third part will help you think about preventive diplomacy through concepts such as design thinking, message development and storytelling. Finally, the fourth section presents basic information about UNRCCA and the Preventive Diplomacy Academy.
