O'Neill Chair in Peace and community-based charity International Peace Education Resources (IPER) invite applications for the 2022 Summer Institute on Peacebuilding, Public Order and Conflict Management. This unique programme is back in a new location in person after two years of pandemic shut down.

This year, we will be based in person on Ulster University’s Magee Campus, in Derry/Londonderry. The programme includes classroom-based work, a film screening and panel discussions alongside study visits to sites and events in Armagh, Portadown, Derry and Belfast where you will meet local community organisations who participate in the design and delivery of the programme.

The Summer School is also an international experience. Sitting with diverse classmates from around the globe, participants will draw comparisons between the local situation and other societies such as South Africa, Nigeria and Israel / Palestine.

Instructor/s: UMASS Professors Darren Kew, Ebeb Weitzman, Karen Ross and Marie Breen-Smyth, Ulster Professors Brandon Hamber, Bill Rolston, Monica McWilliams and Dr Adrian Grant, Queen’s University’s Dr Lisa Whitten & local community peace-building experts.
