Calling Applications for Master of Arts in Conflict Analysis and Peace Building at Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution, Jamia Millia Islamia New Delhi
The Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution was launched in 2004, and was one of the first centres for peace and conflict resolution to be established at an Indian university. While the chief focus of the Centre is comparative and contemporary studies, it also aims to fill a gap in Indian academic life - the lack of serious and purposeful analysis of types and sources of conflict in our country & neighborhood, and the methods of dealing with them that India has adopted. There is a wealth of Indian literature on war-making and peace settlements through the ages - but it has not yet been collected or analyzed from a doctrinal point of view.
The Center has, and hopes to develop further, an active programme of: research, curriculum development, teaching, seminars/conferences and training courses for faculty, administration and civil society, as well as partnerships with other university centres/departments and institutions working in the field of peace and conflict studies.
Application deadline is 30th June, herewith I have attached the prospector. Some studentships are available students from SARC countries.
