The Trudeau Centre for Peace, Conflict and Justice administers the program in Peace, Conflict and Justice at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.

The Peace, Conflict and Justice program provides undergraduates with an interdisciplinary education covering three central pillars: the meanings and causes of conflict, peace, and justice; the lived experiences of living in the context of conflict and struggles for peace and justice; and approaches to resolving conflict and producing peace and/or justice. The topics of study are wide-ranging, including the study of peacemaking and peace-building, interstate war and intrastate conflicts, insurgencies, revolutions and rebellions, ethnic strife, global justice, and negotiation theory. In doing so, we address some of the world’s most urgent humanitarian problems, and train students to deeply analyze these issues across several levels of analysis, from the local through the national and the global. Students interested in this program are strongly encouraged to consider pursuing a double major in related fields, especially International Relations. Other related fields include: Economics, Political Science, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Geography, History, Diaspora and Transnational Studies, Ethics, Society and Law and Women and Gender Studies
