This dual degree program combines the faculties of two renowned educational institutions: George Mason’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution School, the oldest and largest programme of graduate conflict studies in the United States, and the University of Malta ’s recently established Centre for the Study and Practice of Conflict Resolution (CSPCR), whose main interests are, inter alia, conflict resolution practices, the relationship between conflict and human rights, as well as justice and security. The Carter School and CSPCR share teaching responsibilities in this program.
