Peace and Conflict Studies 

Peace and Conflict Studies is the study of the causes, dynamics and resolution of armed conflicts. Questions commonly asked within the field include, for example: How do states identify and deal with security threats? Why do states and non-state actors choose violent means for solving their political disputes? How are peace processes best designed to reach durable solutions to existing conflicts? What particular challenges do societies face in the aftermath of a civil war? The Department offers comprehensive education in the subject, including full-range Bachelor, Master, and PhD Programs. As a student at the department you will engage with a vibrant research environment and thrive among motivated high-performing fellow students. Almost all classes are taught in English and the students regularly come from all corners of the world. Moreover, the relatively small size of the department allows for close ties between students and teachers.

The analytic skills gained through our courses and programs are useful for students aiming to become either academics or practitioners in their professional life. Students from our department have proceeded to careers within, for example, international organizations such as the United Nations, governmental ministries and agencies, as well as various non-governmental organizations. Other alumni have pursued PhD studies at prestigious universities worldwide, including Columbia University (New York), Johns Hopkins (Washington, DC), King’s College (London), Oxford University, and European University Institute (Florence).
