The effective educational pursuit of peace and justice cannot be purely theoretical or academic; it must also be experiential. The sustainability of peaceful interactions depends on skilled maneuvering within existing institutions and social structures, though justice sometimes is enhanced from ‘positive conflicts’ in diverse settings. It requires creative problem solving, an understanding of the nature of conflict and cultural differences, and the ability to communicate effectively through appropriate dialogue. These are skills that are learned and refined through the interdisciplinary Peace and Justice Studies (PJS) program at Tufts.
