As Trinity's only cross-border School, this course is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It offers an inter-disciplinary approach to the challenges of political and social reconciliation in the aftermath of armed conflict. It equips graduates for work with local and international organisations, and provides transferable skills for a wide variety of careers, including mediation, diplomacy, policy, advocacy, journalism, teaching, and ministry, as well as Ph.D. research.
Modules offered include weekly classes taught at the Irish School of Ecumenics, Belfast, as well as the option to take a one week-long residential course at the Corrymeela Community Centre for Reconciliation in Ballycastle on the north Antrim coast. This course offers students academic and theoretical insight into conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as practical skills and experience through placements and workshops. Students are offered the chance to engage with community based actors and organisations involved at a grassroots level in the process of conflict transformation and social justice. As such, the course is a hybrid mix between the theoretical and practical that offers a dynamic learning experience beyond the classroom setting.'
Northern Ireland faces many social and political challenges as it emerges from decades of violence. Yet Belfast is a vibrant city, undergoing an exciting post-conflict transformation. The city provides a unique backdrop to the MPhil., allowing students to immerse themselves in a society grappling with the challenges and opportunities of conflict transformation.
