M.A. in Religion, Culture, and Peace Studies

Established by the Dr. ALISSA Fellowship Programme, the M.A. in Religion, Culture, and Peace Studies has been designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in contexts related to peace and conflict studies that are entangled with aspects of religious and cultural traditions. Acknowledging the critical role that religion and culture play in being a motivation for or a factor in the resolution of conflicts, this programme takes an interdisciplinary and dynamic approach to deal with a range of issues, including the theoretical and practical aspects crucial to engage with the study of different traditions, and cultivating nuanced insights in the ways in which the ideal of peace can be furthered through relevant resources belonging to the domains of religion and culture. Multiple traditions from across the world will be explored throughout the year using practical cases and diverse perspectives in tandem with aspects such as raceethnicityclasswomen’s rights, and ability, among others.

This programme is co-sponsored by the Muslim World League, the Pontifical Lateran University, and the World Jewish Congress.
