About

This course is based in Belfast. After registration in Dublin at the start of the course, teaching takes place in Belfast and other locations over two teaching terms, September to December and January to early April. For the remainder of the programme, including the summer dissertation period, April-September, students may be based in either Belfast or Dublin depending on their research interests. A one term (twelve week) programme is available and is ideal for those on sabbatical, or for those who prefer a shorter period of study. There is also the option of attending singlemodules.

The M.Phil. in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation is designed to suit the needs of specialists already working in conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as those new to these fields of study.

As Trinity's only cross-border School, this course is based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It offers an inter-disciplinary approach to the challenges of political and social reconciliation in the aftermath of armed conflict. It equips graduates for work with local and international organisations, and provides transferable skills for a wide variety of careers, including mediation, diplomacy, policy, advocacy, journalism, teaching, and ministry, as well as Ph.D. research.

Modules offered include weekly classes taught at the Irish School of Ecumenics, Belfast, as well as week-long residential courses at the Corrymeela Community's Centre for Reconciliation in Ballycastle on the north Antrim coast. These modules are taught by experts from our partner organisations, Beyond Walls, the Glencree Centre for Reconciliation and Different Tracks Global. Students may also take modules taught at ISE in Dublin. The course offers students academic and theoretical insight into conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as practical skills and experience through placements and workshops.

Northern Ireland faces many social and political challenges as it emerges from decades of violence. Yet Belfast is a vibrant city, undergoing an exciting post-conflict transformation. The city provides a unique backdrop to the MPhil., allowing students to immerse themselves in a society grappling with the challenges and opportunities of conflict transformation.
