Overview Overview
 

This module delivers the necessary knowledge and skills for students to work in the field of transformative peacemaking.

The module teaches transformational interventions that promote methods to reduce and ultimately eliminate violence; interventions that foster structures that maximise participation of people in decisions that affect them.
Students are taught process knowledge and conflict intervention skills for practice as a peacemaker drawing from the work of scholar practitioners in the field such as Lederach.
The programme is comprised of seminars as well as presentations and conversations with guest lecturers.
Students develop a pland for a practical project in peacemaking. A three day visit to Northern Ireland enables students to hear directly the lessons of the Northern Ireland Peace Process.
