Why a Masters in Sustainable Peace through Sport?
This program is the result of a partnership between three institutions that have established a solid expertise in their respective fields. Monaco-based, Peace and Sport is an institution that puts the values of sport at the service of peace and spearheads various projects around the world.
"This programme will lead to the genesis of a body of trained and competent 'Engineers for Peace through Sport' able to make peace through sport a reality. I am proud that the Principality of Monaco, the cradle of so many sports and humanitarian events, is host to such an innovative Master's degree".
