Virtual Summer Institute on Conflict Transformation across Borders
June 12-23, 2023, 10:00a.m.-1:00p.m. EST each weekday, plus an additional asynchronous week through June 30 to complete projects.
UMass Boston McCormack Graduate School of Policy & Global Studies, in collaboration with Latin American partner universities FLACSO Ecuador, PUC de Rio (Brazil), and Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica, will hold their virtual Summer Institute on Conflict Transformation across Borders from June 12-23, 2023, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Eastern time each weekday, plus an additional asynchronous week through July 8 to complete projects. While graduate course credit will be awarded, participants anywhere in the world are eligible to enroll and do not have to be current UMass Boston graduate students.
The summer institute will include the analysis of concrete cases of conflict, peacebuilding, migration and border challenges, as well as practical skills training on conflict analysis, negotiation and mediation, and proposal writing, with top-level guest speakers from around the world. Cases drawn from Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Brazil, Haiti, and the United States will provide concrete examples. Participants will design their own proposal for a peacebuilding intervention and will receive feedback from a panel of experienced experts in the field. The course (listed as #3602 in the summer course catalogue) will be co-facilitated by Dr. Jeffrey Pugh of UMass Boston's Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, and Global Governance, Dr. Cecile Mouly of FLACSO Ecuador, and Dr. Monica Herz of PUC de Rio, along with a distinguished lineup of guest speakers. , contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
