Course Description

Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation (M.Phil./P.Grad.Dip.)

Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the M.Phil. in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation reflects 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.

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 this M.Phil., allowing students to immerse themselves in a society grappling with the challenges of, and opportunities for, conflict transformation.

Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation is the only Trinity course based in Belfast. Living and studying in a divided society affords valuable opportunities for students, but the student experience here is different to attending a large campus university, or Trinity in Dublin. The department has its own excellent specialist library and small core staff. Study space, sports facilities, and clubs and societies are available through Queen’s University Belfast which is close by. Most Trinity student support services can be accessed remotely but be aware that students must travel to Dublin if they wish to access the full range of services in person.
