Liverpool Hope launches MA in Peace Studies

Crest Stained Glass Wednesday 21 August 2013

We are happy to announce to launch of the MA Peace Studies in September 2013 at Liverpool Hope.

Peace Studies deals with one of the most pressing issues of the contemporary world - the challenges that confront actors in conflict and post-conflict societies. The course will reflect on the complexity of peace and peacebuilding, combining theoretical approaches with opportunities for in-depth case study research.

The aim of this programme is to deconstruct the notion of peace and shed light on the issues of peacebuilding.  The course encourages thinking beyond the mainstream and encourages students to make a contribution to the discipline.

The programme is built around a core of International Relations, but also draws on other disciplines such as History, Economics, Religious Studies and Law. The objective is to encourage our students to engage critically with both the theoretical and practical dimensions of contemporary conflicts and attempts to (re) build peace.

Students will have the opportunity to become involved in and benefit from the active work of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies.
