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!


* The Unit for Peace and Conflict Studies mourns Vicent Martínez Guzmán, the founder of the Master of Peace and Development Studies at Universitat Jaume I. in Castellón de la Plana and icon of Hispanic Peace Studies. For 25 years we cooperated in close friendship. Without Vicent's inspiration the Innsbruck School of Peace Studies would not be the same, without his support our Master program would not exist. Thank you deeply Vicent Martínez Guzmán! May you rest in the Many Peaces that you mean to this world.

* Now online: A first description (in German) about the newly founded Research Centre for Peace and Conflict. The official homepage with more details will be announced shortly.  

* Now available: Transrational Resonances: Echoes to the Many Peaces. A book by Echavarría Alvarez, Josefina, Ingruber, Daniela, Koppensteiner, Norbert (Eds.), which comprehensively gathers the current academic literature, field expertise and artistic developments on Wolfgang Dietrich’s Many Peaces theory.

* Listen online now:  Enjoy radio features, speeches and interviews on the Media Page of the UNESCO Chair & MA Program for Peace Studies.

 * Now available: the English translation of the 3rd volume "Elicitive Conflict Mapping", which completes Wolfgang Dietrich's trilogy. It presents Elicitive Conflict Mapping as a practical tool of applied conflict work. 

* We would like to present the Peace Studies Fund, a project initiated by students of the MA program to enable students with a difficult economic background to keep on studying after the first term by paying for the tuition fees. If you would like to contribute, please visit the Peace Studies Fund.

* The online phase of the Winter Term 2018/19 takes place from September 17th until December 10th 2018 and the presence phase from January 06th until March 02nd 2019.  

* The online phase of the Summer Term 2019 takes place from March 25th until June17th 2018 and the presence phase from June 23rd until August 17th 2018.
