Thinking peaceful change.

The Master’s Degree Programme in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research (PEACE) provides a multi- and interdisciplinary approach to peace and conflict research. The PEACE programme facilitates the understanding of complex nature of wars and conflicts as well as their short and long term consequences. The programme focuses not only on the study of conflict but primarily on its transformation and on the conditions for peaceful change. In the programme, it is examined, for example, how violent conflicts, ethnic and religious discrimination and human rights violations produce forced displacement and how different actors can respond to these crisis situations. Furthermore, the programme deals also with the role of the environment and natural resources in conflict and peacebuilding. Students learn about the preconditions for conflict resolution and sustainable peace in local as well as in international and global contexts. Special emphasis is given to various tools and phases of conflict transformation -- peacebuilding, mediation, reconciliation and dialogue. More than just the study of conflict dynamics, the emphasis of the programme lies on the transformation of violent conflicts to achieve sustainable peace. Along with the Nordic tradition of peace research, the programme aims to take a holistic as well as a normative approach.
