Summary

Course Description

The M.Phil. in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation is designed to suit the needs of specialists already working in conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as those new to these fields of study.

This course is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland reflecting the School and Trinity’s commitment to cross-border education. It offers an inter-disciplinary approach to the challenges of political and social reconciliation in the aftermath of violent conflict. Graduates are equipped for work with local and international organisations,and gain transferable skills for a wide variety of careers, including mediation, diplomacy, policy, advocacy, journalism, teaching, and ministry, as well as Ph.D. research.
Modules offered include weekly classes taught at Trinity College Dublin at Belfast, as well as one week intensives. This course offers students academic and theoretical insight into conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as practical skills and experience through placements and workshops. Students have the opportunity to engage with community-based actors and organisations involved at grassroots level in the process of conflict transformation and social justice.

Northern Ireland faces many social and political challenges as it emerges from decades of violence. Yet Belfast is a vibrant city, undergoing an exciting post-conflict transformation. The city provides a unique backdrop for the M.Phil., allowing students to immerse themselves in a society grappling with the challenges of, and opportunities for, conflict transformation.
