The Master’s Degree Programme in Global Society - Peace, Mediation and Conflict Research from Tampere University examines, for example, how violent conflicts, ethnic and religious discrimination and human rights violations produce forced displacement and how different actors can respond to these crisis situations.
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.
The programme prepares students for postgraduate studies, independent research work as well as for professional activities which include various tasks in the global society, ranging from interpersonal relationships to international conflict situations. There is a growing need for expertise in conflict resolution, mediation and crisis management in the service of governments, international organisations, NGOs and media. The need for expertise in these areas is constantly increasing.
