In Peace and Development Work you study the relationship between poverty, conflicts and sustainable development as well as political room for manoeuvre for change.
Peace and Development Work is for students who are looking for a specialisation in issues linked to peace, development and international development co-operation. We focus on current research concerning development as well as the practical work carried out by international institutions, non-governmental organisations and social movements.
As a Master student, and in writing your final thesis, you have the possibility to work together with an organization or to conduct a field study in a developing country. The interdisciplinary approach of the progamme - where we also discuss how development issues can be solved in real politics - allows us to keep a close connection with people who are employed within our field and to learn from them. Moreover, most of our teachers have long experience from working with peace and development in developing countries.
In the program we also discuss communication issues and how they can influence international development.
The objective of the programme is to create possibilities for future employment within e.g., civil society and international organisations that deal with Peace and development issues. During your study you have the possibility to work together with an organisation or to conduct a field study in a developing country. Students develop both analytical capabilities and practical skills which are necessary for work in the complex reality of international development.
