The program for Conflict Research, Management and Resolution is an interdisciplinary graduate program, focusing on research topics in conflict management and resolution in various fields.
The program includes the study of the theoretical approaches, strategies, and techniques of conflict management, resolution and problem solving between individuals; social, economic, and political groups; communities; and states. The program includes both academic-theoretical and methodological courses, with the latter addressing the development of skills, techniques, and internships related to conflict resolution
In the framework of the academic-theoretical courses, the student is exposed to major theories in the field of conflict research on the different levels, with an emphasis on analysis of real-world cases. The student acquires practical tools in the framework of workshops that impart conflict-management skills in such contexts as negotiations, mediation, and group workshops. Most of the courses are delivered in seminar and small group formats.
