Join us for “Conflict Development Issues in Indigenous Communities” at the 2018 Canadian School of Peacebuilding with instructor Tabitha Martens. Courses are available for professional development, personal inspiration or academic credit. Within a broad framework of international development and conflict transformation studies, this course explores the dynamics of Indigenous communities globally, with special reference to the Canadian context. Processes of marginalization and underdevelopment will be presented in order to understand Indigenous communities’ social, economic, and political situations.


Class sessions run from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM on campus at Canadian Mennonite University. Meals are available in the CMU dining room and housing is available on campus in the dormitory. All on-campus lodging and meal packages must be arranged and paid for in advance. More details are available on our website.

The CSOP is designed for anyone between the ages of 20 and 90 who is interested in peace work, including not-for-profit staff and interns, activists and peace educators, community leaders, religious leaders, teachers and professors, students (undergraduate or graduate), and government officials.

The school is designed to be an environment characterized by (a) educating for peace and justice, (b) learning through thinking and doing, (c) generous hospitality and radical dialogue, and (d) the modeling of invitational community.
