Online Courses

The Gandhi-King Global Academy offers a suite of practical online self-paced and instructor-led courses designed to support the educational and training needs of frontline peacebuilders in conflict-affected countries. Courses cover negotiation, mediation, conflict analysis, nonviolent action and many more peacebuilding topics. All courses are free of charge and offer participants a certificate of completion.

A Community of Learning

The Gandhi-King Global Academy offers more than just courses. We prioritize engaging with and learning from others in conflict-affected areas in an effort to help students think about conflict in new and diverse ways to change attitudes and behaviors. Connect with peacebuilders around the globe using discussion boards and groups. You can chat, share resources, and network with others in the Gandhi-King Global Academy. 

Student-Centered Opportunities

All of our courses, workshops and trainings reflect the principle that all participants have valuable experiences and perspectives to share. Our instructors and trainers facilitate an elicitive learning process that enables students to share with and learn from each other.

Simulations and Problem-solving Scenarios

Interactive tools give participants the opportunity to apply knowledge to real-world contexts and generate a deeper understanding of the content. We draw our lessons from our experience on the ground, so our tools provide tangible benefits to our students.
