The peacebuilding concentration within the MS in Global Affairs (MSGA) helps students to develop theoretical understanding and practical skills that are demanded by international organizations engaged in international peacebuilding. Students in the peacebuilding concentration have the opportunity each spring semester to participate as graduate student consultants in the Workshop in Applied Peacebuilding, which connects students with professional peacebuilding organizations and supports them in developing projects with partner organizations, drawing upon best practices in peacebuilding, for implementation in the field during the summer.

Workshop in Applied Peacebuilding

The Workshop in Applied Peacebuilding, taught every spring semester by IPE director Dr. Thomas Hill, links students in the MSGA program with professional peacebuilding organizations. Students design and develop proposed projects in the classroom at CGA in close collaboration with partner organizations during the spring semester; during the summer, students implement the projects in the field.

Over the last seven years, 70 MSGA students have developed and implemented peacebuilding projects with international organizations and local NGOs in Afghanistan, Brazil, Burundi, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Iraq, Japan, Jordan, Liberia, Pakistan, Panama, Rwanda, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Timor Leste, Uganda, and the United States.
