Conflict is a part of the reality of our organisation, community & our daily life. Understanding the multi-fold and inter-related causes of violence and conflict, and creating the conditions for moving out of authoritarianism into a culture of peace and democracy, remains a major challenge in the world today, more particularly in Africa. The 100% Online Masters in Peace and Conflict Studies from The Copperbelt University teaches you methods and problem solving skills for conflict resolutions and negotiations. The added benefit of the 100% Online Modules gives you the flexibility to Interact with your peers, participate in discussion and get guidance from a world class faculty at your convenient time and place. The distance learning programme is intended for those who are already involved in conflict management but need further capacity building and those who choose a career in conflict management and peace building.
