CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security and Global Governance at the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies, University of Massachusetts Boston, (UMASS) in partnership with Ulster University’s INCORE and the John Hume and Tip O'Neill Chair in Peace and community-based charity International Peace Education Resources (IPER) invite applications for the 2022 Summer Institute on Peacebuilding, Public Order and Conflict Management. This unique programme is back in a new location in person after two years of pandemic shut down.
Described by one former participant as ‘life-changing’, this exciting course is led by Professor Marie Breen-Smyth. It is delivered by UMASS and Ulster University professors from INCORE and the Hume O'Neill Chair, Rural Community Network, Holywell Trust, the Newgate Centre, as well as high profile activists and politicians from across the spectrum in Northern Ireland.
This year, we will be based in person on Ulster University’s Magee Campus, in Derry Londonderry. The programme includes classroom-based work, a film screening and panel discussions alongside study visits to sites and events in Armagh, Portadown, Derry Londonderry and Belfast where you will meet local community organisations who participate in the design and delivery of the programme.
Sitting with diverse classmates from around the globe, participants will draw comparisons between the local situation and other societies such as South Africa and Israel / Palestine add to the international dimension.
Instructor/s: UMASS Professors Darren Kew, Ebeb Weitzman, Karen Ross and Marie Breen-Smyth, Ulster Professors Brandon Hamber Brandon Hamber, Bill Rolston, Monica McWilliams and Dr Adrian Grant, Queen’s University’s Dr Lisa Whitten & local community-based peace-building experts.
