The masters is designed to enable each student to make a positive contribution in the following fields: human rights, democratic principles, gender equality, political and ethical solidarity, environment protection, universal access to education, conflict resolution and promoting peace.

One key objective of the course is to enable students to understand and critically analyse the concept of ‘cultures of peace’ from diverse sociological, political, psychological, and educational perspectives. Emphasis is also placed on gender issues throughout the course.

Moreover, students learn how to identify the causes of conflicts throughout the globe, track their development, determine their consequences, and formulate proposals to resolve them.

Students are also taught how to develop and apply both quantitative and qualitative analyses to these fundamental issues, ensuring that they have the methodological tools to contribute effectively to the construction of peace in different contexts and settings.
