FIE Peace and Conflict Summer Visit

 

Sunday, June 9 – Tuesday, June 11, 2019

For study abroad advisors, academic advisors, and interested faculty responsible for advising on programs related to Peace, Conflict, International Relations, Diplomacy, and related majors.

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.

Meet with Dr. Paul Arthur, Professor of Politics, Emeritus Director of the Graduate Program in Peace and Conflict Studies, and International Conflict Research Institute Honorary Associate at the University of Ulster who teaches the program in Ireland and is the Director of the program.

Visit Dublin historical and political sites with the program participants including the General Post Office Witness Tour, Kilmainham Gaol, Glasnevin Cemetery, and Leinster House, the seat of the Oireachtas, the parliament of Ireland but originally the ducal palace of the Dukes of Leinster. There is also the option to join the Peace and Conflict students on their Study Tour to Northern Ireland after the Dublin site visit.

This special opportunity is designed not only to provide you with the chance to experience part of our amazing Conflict and the Struggle for Peace program, but also the opportunity to meet FIE staff, tour student residences and academic facilities, and experience a bit of Irish hospitality.
