PEACE x PEACE SHORT COURSE

Every day, conflict dominates the headlines. Peace by Peace will focus on the opposite. As a student-led initiative, the short course looks to explore what it means to take a step further away from conflict. The 10-day short course works to explore peace on different levels within our society. From peace on a personal level to peace amongst nations. In a world constantly facing conflict, it is important that we rise to the challenge and attempt to bring about change in our local communities. Peace by Peace strives to bring people together to explore ways in which each individual can contribute to the idea of peace, on any scale, in any cultural context.

June 26th to July 5th, 2019 | Phuket, Thailand

What the short course will cover?

1. Diversity

In an increasingly globalised world, it is important to highlight the value of community amidst diversity.

2. Communication

Developing participant’s personal communication skills is key in conflict resolution. One must first be able to communicate respectfully and coherently before they can begin to build peace.

3. Interstate / Intercultural Conflict

Cultural differences can be found at the root of many conflicts, so we want to explore how and why this happens, as well as how to prevent it.

4. Governments and Their Actions

How do governments help to promote the happiness and well-being of their population? How do governments promote peace and sustainability?

5. Migration and Refugees

Conflicts can cause mass exoduses of people around the world. Today, as travel between countries becomes easier, this becomes an increasingly relevant issue.

6. Inequality

Present in many layers of society, inequality can be both a cause of conflict and a result; and is often inherently a barrier to establishing long-term peace.

7. Social Constructs and Social Justice

On a government or state-to-state level, there may be apparent peace; but the constructs within our society—on a community and personal level—play a large role on individual peace and happiness.

8. Personal Peace

Often, peace is spoken about as an external occurrence, but it is very much an internal and personal process as well.
