Peace and Conflict Resolution in London and the Middle East

                             Conducted in English

Spend your summer in London and Amman exploring the process of peace and the sensitive cultural and societal roots of conflict. This unique program will begin in the UK by studying peace and conflict theory, using Northern Ireland as a case study for beginning to understand how those theories translate to Middle Eastern issues. A study tour to Derry, Northern Ireland contextualizes the case study. Once in Amman, students use their new understanding of peace and conflict to examine how the Arab/Israeli conflict; regional conflicts such as those in Lebanon, Yemen or Iraq; and tribal conflicts are being addressed.

Highlights include: A study tour to Derry, Northern Ireland, guest lectures and visits with prominent figures in journalism and politics, City Tour of modern and ancient Amman, Northern Jordan (including Ajloun Castle and Jerash), Biblical Jordan (including Madaba, The Dead Sea, Mount Nebo and the Baptism Site), and South Jordan (including Wadi Rum and Petra)

Program open only to students with a 3.0 GPA or above.
