Course Description

Course Profile

Strategic Peace and Conflict Studies (SPACS) is an innovative and interdisciplinary joint programme of Collegium Civitas (CC) and The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).

The programme has been developed following the Memorandum of Understanding signed in June 2020 and is based on experience and know-how of both institutions. SPACS is the first programme of this kind in Poland, and one of the very few in Europe.

It is aimed at empowering students to: understand the root causes of violence and international conflicts and foundations of long lasting peace;
develop practical skills necessary for the process of conflict transformation and positive social change;develop and deploy peacebuilding strategies at the policy level, the middle-level and the grassroots level.

SPACS combines the knowledge from such fields as: international relations, sociology, psychology, international law, economy, human rights, security studies, and others to generate a comprehensive body of knowledge, and to arrive with 21st century solutions to 21st century problems.
What distinguishes this programme 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 skills needed to effect change both at the community and at the high policy level.
