  • Course description
    This programme will be of interest to both recent graduates and those wishing to return to study in higher education. The course provides a thorough grounding in conflict, conflict transformation and peace-building.  It will be of particular interest to those individuals currently working, or planning to work, in community organisations, NGOs and international organisations concerned with conflict resolution.

    Study Details / Module Information
    Designed as a comprehensive overview of the field, this course will familiarize students with various theoretical understandings of conflict, conflict transformation and peace-building. Students will explore these issues at a personal, intergroup, and international level. The course will take an interdisciplinary approach and focus on both theoretical underpinnings and essential skills and knowledge for facilitating conflict prevention, transformation and peace building. Students will be encouraged to critically examine their underlying assumptions and beliefs about war and peace, their reactions to conflict and practice seeing conflict from different perspectives. Students will be expected to engage in discussions, role-plays, exercises, and apply theories and models to real-life case studies.
