Course content

This programme has a strong focus on post-violence peacebuilding, which is appropriate given that it is rooted in a society emerging from decades of protracted violence. However, the geographical scope of INCORE’s work in research, policy, and practice is both local and global and this is reflected in the modules offered on the programme.

The overall approach seeks to develop the critical, theoretical and analytical skills necessary for working in conflicted societies – in ways that are grounded in real life application and case studies.
