The Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation programme of Trinity College Dublin is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland reflecting the School and Trinity’s commitment to cross-border education. It offers an inter-disciplinary approach to the challenges of political and social reconciliation in the aftermath of violent conflict. Graduates are equipped for work with local and international organisations,and gain transferable skills for a wide variety of careers, including mediation, diplomacy, policy, advocacy, journalism, teaching, and ministry, as well as Ph.D. research.
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 have the opportunity to engage with community-based actors and organisations involved at grassroots level in the process of conflict transformation and social justice.
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 for the M.Phil., allowing students to immerse themselves in a society grappling with the challenges of, and opportunities for, conflict transformation.
