PSTD 289 - Advanced Topics in Peace Studies:Peace Building, Mediation, and Conflict Resolution

These aspects are explored at interpersonal, local and international levels.  The course involves lectures, visits, and closely working with organizations involved in peace building related activities.   It will provide an opportunity to conduct independent research on a Peace Studies theme and area selected by the student so that s/he integrates the linkages between the themes, areas, and disciplinary foci of study.  The specific focuses and format of the course will vary according to interests of the faculty and availability of field resources.
