Master of Arts Program
in Peace, Development, Security and International Conflict Transformation

MA Program for Peace Studies

Maybe the best Peace Studies Program in the world,
certainly the toughest!


* We mourn the passing of our good friend and colleague of many years, Professor Francisco A. Muñoz. With him our discipline has lost an important and inspiring voice that will be both missed and fondly remembered. 

* Now available on Youtube: UNESCO Chairholder Wolfgang Dietrich explains the Transrational Peace Philosophy and the Innsbruck approach to Elicitive Conflict Transformation as published in the Many Peaces Series.

 * Now available in print: Elicitive Conflict Transformation and the Transrational Shift in Peace Politics, the second volume in the new trilogy by UNESCO Chairholder Wolfgang Dietrich published as Volume 2 in the 'Many Peaces' series. It highlights the origin, teaching, art and practice of elicitive conflict transformation as it is embedded in transrational peace research and taught at the MA Program. This new book deepens the debate on the tansrational approach introduced in the first volume and presents elicitice conflict transformation as method resulting thereof. The application in teaching in connection with the challenges of current conflict work form its core concern

* Now available in print: Interpretations of Peace in History and Culture, the first English volume of the new series 'Many Peaces' written by Wolfgang Dietrich and published at Palgrave Macmillan. Spanning continents as well as disciplines, this book presents a panorama of diverse interpretations of peace in world history and culture. Dietrich takes the reader on a fascinating journey through time and space, exploring the so-called five families of peace - energetic, moral, modern, postmodern, and transrational.
