PSTD 101 - Introduction to Peace Studies


How can we transform conflicts in our personal lives, our society, and our world so that they generate development and justice rather than oppression and destruction? We will examine the roots of interpersonal and collective violence and attempts to reduce and abolish it. When is nonviolent struggle effective? When is violence justified? Students will investigate these questions and develop skills to wage peace.
