What is the Peace & Post Conflict Studies Certificate? 

A Certificate in Peace and Post-Conflict Studies will equip students across a number of faculties and disciplines with the knowledge of the complexity of instituting measures that address underlying sources of conflict and provide them with hands-on practical approaches to sustaining peace. In a global climate of conflict, fear and insecurity, the issue of building sustainable peace in countries that have undergone the ravages of conflict is of vital importance to policy makers and academics alike.
