Peace and Conflict Studies (Applied)
This programme is located within INCORE (International Conflict Research Institute an associate site of the United Nations University), and it attracts students from a number of countries and a wide variety of academic backgrounds; as it is based in an active research and practice centre, you can expect to learn from faculty with practical and theoretical skills; its location in Northern Ireland provides excellent opportunities for experiential learning in a society coming out of violent conflict; this programme has a strong focus on post-violence peace building, which is appropriate given that it is rooted in a society emerging from decades of protracted violence; however, the geographical scope of INCORE�s work in research, policy, and practice is both local and global.
