Study Abroad  

Peace & Conflict Resolution in the Middle East & Beyond: Summer Program

Spend your summer in London and Amman exploring the process of peace and the sensitive cultural and societal roots of conflict. Your program will begin in the U.K. by studying peace and conflict theory, using Northern Ireland as a case study for beginning to understand how those theories translate to Middle Eastern issues. Once in Amman, use your new understanding of peace and conflict to examine how the Arab/Israeli conflict; regional conflicts such as those in Lebanon, Yemen or Iraq; and tribal conflicts are being addressed. Includes an intensive Arabic language program extension option and a study tour in Derry and Belfast, Northern Ireland. Visit the program website or email studyabroad@fie.org.uk (phone: 1-800-856-4358) for more information.
