Peace Research

and Faculty

Faculty are leading experts in conflict theory and intervention. As researchers and practitioners, they provide students with a unique blend of cutting-edge knowledge and know-how that our graduates apply to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflicts.

Public Policies In Shared Societies

Students spend three months in the field integrated in peacebuilding organizations (NGO, government or international agency) or conducting independent research. Upon return to Boston, they share their findings at a capstone with faculty, fellow students, alumni and partners.
