Program Overview:
By applying the core concepts of peacemaking and peacebuilding in a real-world case study, students will learn from personal experiences with people who have "done the work." Political violence remains one of the twenty-first century's prominent and intractable issues. Learning first-hand how peace can happen in a deeply divided post-violent conflict society can provide a positive learning experience for PLU undergraduates.
