Description

Everyday we see images of war and violence on our television screens and in the newspapers. Taken together, all the stories of bloodshed create the image of a divided world, with one part engulfed in endless wars and the other looking on helplessly. Peace and Conflict Studies at Malmö University gives you a more truthful understanding of what actually goes on in the combat zones of the planet, and how societies of the global peace zone are implicated in the violence that occurs in distant places.

What causes wars? How can societies move beyond conflict? How can we grasp and analyse the global and local conflict scenarios of our time? These are some of the questions Peace and Conflict Studies will answer. This programme is concerned with the causes and effects of organized violence, with the fate of ordinary people in war and peace and with their aspirations towards peace and justice.

What career will I be prepared for?

We use feedback from former students, who have moved on to successful careers, to design our programme and courses. You will acquire important skills and knowledge, preparing you for an academic career or for employment in the fields of foreign policy, international relations, global affairs, refugee and asylum issues, the analysis, prevention and resolution of conflicts, peace building and reconciliation. Both the public and the private sector, as well as many non-governmental organizations look for skilled and knowledgeable staff able to analyse opportunities and threats, process information on risk scenarios and tap into and contextualize local knowledge systems.

What makes Peace and Conflict Studies unique?

It is important to see peace and conflict issues through the eyes of those who are directly involved in them. We emphasise grassroots perspectives on organized violence, as well as peace initiatives. We also develop and maintain international partnerships so students are able to study or do an internship abroad.

In a cosmopolitan city like Malmö, it is likely that you will meet people who have personal experiences of war and other forms of organized violence. This is true of Malmö Universitys students as well, which opens up new vistas and makes enriching dialogues possible for all of us.
