Description

A certificate in Peace and Conflict Studies is available to all IPFW students who wish to understand the dynamics of conflict as well as various paths toward peace, from the interpersonal to the global level. We explore the exciting frontiers of nonviolent alternatives to conflict. We study issues of inequality and injustice, and focus on nonviolent initiatives for social change as well as conflict resolution that fosters empowerment and recognition of our common humanity. The primary goal of the program is to develop students’ competencies in fields contributing towards peace and social transformation.
