Organising institution
University of Seychelles: Campus Anse Royale, Seychelles
Frequency Annual
Level postgraduate
Objectives The programme aims to equip students with a thorough understanding of the nature of peace and challenges in its fulfilment. In addition to generic principles, it will enable students to locate the issue of peace and conflict resolution within their own experience and, where appropriate, to seek nonviolent solutions.

One of the maxims of peace studies is that while conflict is inevitable, the use of violence is a choice. This applies whether the conflict is between individuals, between groups or between nations. Accordingly, two major reasons for offering degrees in peace studies are to motivate people to choose nonviolent ways of dealing with the inevitable conflicts which occur, and to educate them about the range of nonviolent options available.

Through the elective system, the framework will allow students to specialise in Law in addition to the main core of Peace and Conflict Resolution courses.
