Curriculum

 

The eleven week curriculum is an intensive course designed to give Fellows a comprehensive overview of the peace studies and conflict resolution fields.  Centered on the core themes of conflict analysis and mapping, conflict tracking, conflict transformation, and peacebuilding, the course seeks to provide Fellows with a solid theoretical understanding of these concepts.  In addition, the curriculum offers Fellows a key set of practical tools for conflict resolution and peacebuilding that Fellows can use once they return to their communities.  By building and strengthening a capable and dedicated network of peacebuilders who graduate from this program, the Rotary Peace Center hopes to make a lasting contribution to peace and communities across the globe.
