Peace and Conflict Studies, Minor

Peace and Conflict Studies asks questions about inter/intra state warfare, gender dynamics and gender justice in conflict zones, colonial violence, Indigenous resistance/resurgence, and grassroots initiatives for peace and justice. Focusing on local and global contexts, Peace and Conflict Studies critically examines the political, social, economic and cultural structures and forces underpinning war and violence, and it investigates paths towards establishing and building peace. Peace and Conflict Studies courses are often interdisciplinary, intersectional, and global, reflecting the rich interdisciplinary frameworks of postcolonialism, feminism, international political sociology, history, and international relations.
