NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS: Master's Program in Coexistence and Conflict

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for a new Master's Program in Coexistence and Conflict beginning September 2004 at Brandeis University, in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA.

This master's program is uniquely designed to provide students with a solid grounding in both the theories of contemporary coexistence and conflict work and the professional skills to design and implement successful interventions that address the challenges of conflict.

The program will particularly suit early and mid-career professionals who work, or aspire to work, within governments, international agencies, or business. It will also help professionals working in related fields such as security and diplomacy, aid and development, human rights, education, and the promotion of democracy and civil society.

The program is under the leadership of Professor Mari Fitzduff, Ph.D. who is from Northern Ireland and brings more than 15 years of international experience in conflict resolution practice and policy development to the program. Prof. Fitzduff was the first chief executive of the Community Relations Council, the foremost conflict resolution agency in Northern Ireland. More recently she served as director of UNU/INCORE, one of the world's leading organizations for international research and consultancy work on coexistence and conflict.

Brandeis is in an ideal location just nine miles west of Boston and offers students a unique opportunity to study in a world-class location home to many of the important organizations researching and working on coexistence and conflict issues.
