Overview Overview
 

This is a problem-oriented Peace and Conflict Studies Module designed to meet the needs of international students at Maynooth University. Its intent is to help students understand the nature and impact of conflict, with special reference to the Irish situation. It addresses the problem of how humans manage conflict and introduces students to negotiation techniques and skills.
The Module uses the prism of the long and intractable conflict in Ireland as the basis and primary case study to elucidate the issues involved. This approach will maximize the benefit of the studentsí experience of being on the ground in Ireland to give the material a unique authenticity, immediacy and relevance.
The overall matrix and rubric of the module entails interactive contextual tutorial style classes and workshops, together with supervised independent study at Maynooth University, during the entire period of the taught semester.
