Peace and Development Work is for students who are looking for a specialization in issues linked to peace, development and international development co-operation. We focus on current research concerning development as well as the practical work carried out by international institutions, non-governmental organizations, and social movements.
As a Master student, and in writing your final thesis, you have the possibility to work together with an organization or to conduct a field study in a developing country. The interdisciplinary approach of the program – where we also discuss how development issues can be solved in real politics – allows us to keep a close connection with people who are employed within our field and to learn from them. Moreover, most of our teachers have long experience of working with peace and development in developing countries.
