Objectives

Our main objective is to train brilliant professionals who will soon join national or international organisations, state or private institutions, NGOs, and all types of action-oriented structures dedicated to dealing with and managing political, socio-economic, and identity-related conflicts, and to engaging in pacifying initiatives.
The work of the Master’s programme in Peace Studies hence resides in providing inter-disciplinary training oriented towards managing crises of all sorts, preventing violence, and building long-lasting peace.
The globalised world is indeed still struggling with an incredibly large number of violent situations, that are characterised by a great deal of increasing complexity. If inter-nation conflicts are less common than a few decades ago, the list of sub-national and transnational violent tensions and face-à-faces is getting longer every day. The reasons are varied, whether economic, social, religious, ethnic, or else. Hence, there is a serious and urgent need for both international control and regulations, and the intervention of international organisations which could mobilise society at an international level.
