Facilitator’s Guide on Civic Education for Peace Builders

This guide is designed to aid facilitators in delivering a participatory training to community paralegals and peace building practitioners. It will build the capacity of paralegals and practitioners to integrate law, governance, peace building and conflict resolution as tools to engage in meaningful social change initiatives. When the training is applied, clients will be able to make informed choices including constructively responding to conflict, shunning violence, withstanding political manipulation and making informed choices. This training manual uses the Kenyan Constitution as a foundational text from which to leverage the law for peacebuilding, but facilitators from other countries may substitute appropriate national or international laws with strong protection of human rights.

The training course envisaged in this guide is to take five days. Each of the 12 modules should take between 1.5 – 2 hours to deliver. The first 6 modules are aimed at building the knowledge base of the participants whilst the last 6 modules aim at skill building. The guide provides for each module an introduction, the objectives, methodology, session duration, training materials and reference materials necessary for effective delivery.
