Event description

Description

Why study peace? Violence and peaceful communities affect us all, in the UK and internationally. Peace Studies offers us a way to think about how our actions and ideas connect to peaceful ways of living, conflict resolution, peacebuilding and nonviolent resistance.

Studying with us at Leeds Beckett includes learning peace theory, international case studies, analysing research on violence and peace, and understanding activism in social change. After studying peace, students go on to work with campaigns or voluntary organisations, international projects, local and national government, or apply their learning to creative and reserach roles.

This short talk gives you an overview and time for questions about 'why study peace'. Everyone welcome, whatever your interest.

Book online and feel free to ask questions.

Everyone is welcome to stay for the afternoon workshop with Marie Dennis and Maria Stephan on the Catholic Initiative on Nonviolence.
