During their studies, students learn about the preconditions for conflict resolution and sustainable peace in local, international and global contexts. Special emphasis is placed on various tools and phases of conflict transformation - peacebuilding, mediation, reconciliation and dialogue.

Furthermore, the teaching draws from close contacts with practitioners in the fields of conflict resolution, civilian crisis management and mediation, giving students an excellent opportunity to engage with practitioners.
