Scheduled on September, 19-23, 2016, the Summer School “War, reconstruction and establishment of peace from the roots of war to the establishment of a lasting Peace” aims to provide a group of international graduate students with scientific pillars about roots of war, peace and issues in peacebuilding.
In line with Peace Science tradition, the interdisciplinary program involves disciplines such as economics, political science, international relations and history. The Summer school is designed for graduate students with a strong interest in the scientific study of Peace that are either willing to proceed to advanced graduate studies or to become future practitioners in the field of international relations and peacebuilding.
In order to favor a fruitful and open dialogue with the faculty, there will be a limited number of participants. Since a first-come first-served criterion will be also considered for selection please apply early, as space in the program is limited.
