Learn in Dublin & Amman!

While exploring the process of peace and conflict resolution and the sensitive cultural and societal roots of conflict, students spend a total of five weeks of the summer in Dublin and Amman. Organized by the Foundation for International Education (FIE) in cooperation with AMIDEAST, students are exposed to the theory and practice of peacekeeping, peace-making, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution in Europe and the Middle East.

 

Academic Overview

  • A study tour to Derry, Northern Ireland to contextualize theory on peace and conflict resolution
  • Students examine the Arab/Israeli conflict, regional conflicts such as those in Lebanon, Yemen, and/or Iraq, and intra- and inter-tribal conflicts, all of which are addressed in a Middle East cultural context
  • Students have the option to extend the experience in Jordan by participating in a 4-week Intensive Arabic Summer Session with AMIDEAST
