Since the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies began over 30 years ago, Apartheid has ended, the Berlin Wall has fallen, and Northern Ireland and Colombia have negotiated peace agreements to end decades of conflict. At the same time, this year alone has seen a wave of protest movements in contexts ranging from Hong Kong to Lebanon to Chile. Climate change, populism, extremism, and massive inequality present increasing threats around the world, highlighting the ongoing need for peacebuilders at all levels of society.
The master’s degree in international peace studies launched by the Kroc Institute at Notre Dame in 1987, and now part of the Master of Global Affairs (MGA) program at the University of Notre Dame’s Keough School, has developed distinctive commitments that define our character and a global alumni network that expands our reach.
To address these challenges, the Kroc Institute offers a peacebuilding curriculum and program with a number of distinguishing characteristics:
Kroc alumni make an impact at every level: from grassroots community organizing to international policymaking. Their work addresses issues including human rights, international development, environmental justice, conflict transformation, and more.
