International Program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation
This one-year Masters aims to offer students around the world the opportunity to study the fundamentals of international conflict resolution at its core. In response to the ever-increasing recognition in the academic world of the importance of conflict resolution, both as a credible research field and a field of practice, we
intend to equip students with the necessary academic and practical tools to assess, manage and resolve conflicts.
The interdisciplinary curriculum will expose the students to a comprehensive study of conflicts and their resolution from numerous perspectives, ranging from international law to psychological and economic approaches. The students will
be guided throughout their studies by the negotiation and mediation skills that they will gradually cultivate. This curriculum will allow graduates to successfully expand their career opportunities and responsibilities in a variety of fields.
