FIE’s CONFLICT AND THE STRUGGLE FOR PEACE SUMMER VISIT (DEADLINE MARCH 30)

At FIE, we are proud of our Conflict and the Struggle for Peace: Explorations in Ireland and the Middle East program that runs in the summer and works with leading peace and justice scholars in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and Jordan. Students walk humbly along the different paths to peace as they dig into the often-sensitive cultural and societal roots of conflict. The program starts in Dublin, Ireland and explores the Anglo-Irish peace process. It includes a study tour to Northern Ireland, United Kingdom before moving to Amman, Jordan. Using the Irish peace process as a case study, students examine intractable conflicts in the Middle East but beyond the Israel-Palestine conflict to also examine larger inter-regional as well as inter-tribal conflicts. At the end of the core program students have the option to add intensive Arabic language classes to make it a summer-long program.

Visit FIE Dublin to experience how political and cultural resources are used to explore conflict development and transformation, the nature of political leadership in conflict, and the significance of “memory” in conflict. Read more on the FIE Peace and Conflict Summer Visit page.
