The M.A. Program in Conflict Analysis and Resolution (CONF) is an interdisciplinary program dedicated to improve the understanding and resolution of current, often violent social conflicts. The program combines both micro and macro level analyses that link theory with practice. For this purpose, the program encourages and promotes:

  • Analyses of current and persistent conflict situations with an emphasis on perceptual and cultural aspects of social conflicts.
  • Research in negotiation, third-party intervention, cooperative decision making, interactive conflict resolution, and track-two diplomacy applied to various social contexts.
  • Creative design and implementation of conflict resolution process to policy issues related to disputes in or among identity groups, governments, organizations, civil society or corporations.
  • International organizations, NGO's, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, consulting firms, are potential employers of our graduates.

    To the attention of those who are interested in applying to the Master's Program in Conflict Analysis and Resolution,

    The Master's Program in Conflict Analysis and Resolution will not accept any new students in the 2020-2021 academic year. Due to the transition period in the design of a new program, we encourage candidates who are interested in these programs to apply to the Master’s Program in Political Science. In the Political Science MA Program’s elective courses pool, there are courses that students who are interested in Conflict Analysis and Resolution can take.

    Degree Requirements may vary according to the year of first enrollment. Continuing students may track their degree requirements based on the year of first enrollment to the program through the following links.
