This year our Master celebrates the 20th anniversary of its creation. Our history dates back to 1994 when, thanks to our founder Dr. Vicent MartŪnez GuzmŠn, the first conference of Philosophy for Peace was conducted in the Universitat Jaume I to which more than 100 people attended.

Description

There is no single way of understanding peace Ė there are as many ways of making peace as there are diverse people and cultures

This is one of the ideas underlying the theoretical grounding of the University Masterís Degree in International Peace, Conflict and Development Studies. Based on this assumption, the curriculum of the course provides specific education in the areas of peace studies, conflict transformation, development cooperation, education for peace, cultures of peace, democracy, human rights, communication by peaceful means and gender and postcolonial studies, among other areas.
