Workshop: Certificate in Peace & Conflict Studies Program, İstanbul‏

The Peace and Conflict Studies Department of Hacettepe University is pleased to announce a Certificate in Peace and Conflict Studies in Istanbul, Turkey.

The goal of the Certificate in Peace & Conflict Studies Program is to develop your skills in critical thinking and to teach you to analyse conflicts, their underlying causes, and how to transform and manage them in a peaceful and ethical way.

The Certificate program is one semester long. Students and faculty will live communally, and concepts and theories learned in the classroom are actualized in the multicultural living environment. Your motivation to promote peace and create a global society of peace and justice is further developed through an immersion in a culture of peace. Visiting professors are among the best peace scholars and practitioners in the world, and you will benefit from their vast experience and dedication.

Hacettepe’s main campus is in Ankara, Turkey’s capital city. However, the site of the Certificate in Peace and Conflict Studies will take place in Istanbul.
