Master's Programme in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research 2012-2014

Master's Programme in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research, which is organized jointly by Åbo Akademi University in Vasa and the University of Tampere, provides interdisciplinary approaches to research on the complex issues of peace and conflict in the contemporary world. These approaches aim to facilitate the understanding of the deep roots of wars and conflicts as well as their short and long term consequences. This Master's Programme also studies the preconditions for conflict resolution and peace in local as well as in international and global contexts. In this Master's Programme peace and conflicts are understood as processes, thus the programme helps to analyze not only the evolution of the conflicts, but also peace building, mediation and negotiation. A variety of approaches, procedures, tools and methods are analyzed in practical context within the Master's Programme in Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research. The programme aims to prepare students for postgraduate studies, independent research work, as well as for professional activity of various types in the society, ranging from interpersonal to international conflict situations.
