onflict and the Struggle for Peace: Explorations in Ireland and the Middle East

Spend the summer in Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Jordan exploring the roots of conflict and the process of peace in this unique program offered through the partnership of AMIDEAST and FIE: Foundation for International Education.

The Conflict and the Struggle for Peace: Explorations in Ireland and the Middle East program begins in Dublin. During the first portion of the program, students take a single course titled Life Cycle of Peace and Conflict: Lessons Learned in Northern Ireland, using the country as a case study to focus on peace and conflict theory. Co-curricular activities such as visits to historic city sites and political walking tours will enhance student understanding of the sensitive cultural and societal roots of conflict. In addition, a study tour of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will contextualize the coursework.

The new understanding of peace and conflict will inform the student experience in Amman, where participants will examine how the Arab/Israeli conflict, regional conflicts such as those in Lebanon, Yemen or Iraq, and tribal conflicts are being addressed. Students enroll in one course, Conflict Resolution and Management: Beyond the Arab-Israeli Conflict, which is complemented by study tours to Mount Nebo, the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum, and the ancient city of Petra.

Following the conclusion of the Conflict and the Struggle for Peace program, a student may opt to extend his/her stay in Amman and participate in the AMIDEAST Intensive Arabic Program which is a four-week program that includes Modern Standard and Colloquial Jordanian Arabic courses.  Arabic courses are available at all levels of study.  (Please note that beginning Arabic will run subject to minimum enrollment).
