What is Peace and Conflict Studies?

Everyday we see images of war and violence on our television screens and in the newspapers. Taken together, all the stories of bloodshed create the image of a divided world, with one part engulfed in endless wars and the other looking on helplessly. Peace and Conflict Studies at Malmö University gives you a more truthful understanding of what actually goes on in the combat zones of the planet, and how societies of the global peace zone are implicated in the violence that occurs in distant places.

What causes wars? How can societies move beyond conflict? How can we grasp and analyse the global and local conflict scenarios of our time? These are some of the questions Peace and Conflict Studies will answer. This programme is concerned with the causes and effects of organized violence, with the fate of ordinary people in war and peace and with their aspirations towards peace and justice.

What makes Peace and Conflict Studies unique?

It is important to see peace and conflict issues through the eyes of those who are directly involved in them. We emphasise grassroots perspectives on organized violence, as well as peace initiatives. We also develop and maintain international partnerships so students are able to study or do an internship abroad.
