Leading with Peace: Lessons from Northern Ireland
This program will engage students in history, social work, economics and other disciplines to better understand local, regional and national reconciliation processes, using the historical conflict of “the Troubles” in North Ireland as an example. Partnering with nonprofit Corrymeela, whose mission is to build trust and understanding among individuals, communities, power structures and statutory bodies in Northern Ireland and beyond, faculty will guide students to understand the pervasiveness, impact and barriers created by conflict and violence and the usefulness of peacemaking and restorative justice practices as future leaders.
