IPACS is a two-year innovative and interdisciplinary program which is aimed at empowering students to:

  • understand the root causes of violence and international conflicts;
  • develop practical skills necessary for the process of conflict transformation/resolution and peaceful social change;

What distinguishes this program from others is a holistic and practical approach which enables students to develop new ways of thinking about current global problems. After the completion of the program, students will be able to critically analyze current events and policy decisions, and will develop the skills needed to effect change both at the community and at the policy level.


The mail goal of the program is to transform students into well-educated and skilled practitioners (peacebuilders) who will be prepared for the varied job market of their profession as well as its rewards and hardships.
