About us

The Centre for the Study and Practice of Conflict Resolution is a recently established Centre within the University of Malta with a view to engage in conflict resolution research and practice.

The establishment of the Centre builds upon a long-standing relationship between the University of Malta and George Mason University, USA in the field of conflict resolution, and works closely with the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution. It also has links with related institutions in Ireland, Cyprus and the UK.  

The main areas of interest for the Centre are, inter alia, conflict resolution practices, the relationship between conflict and human rights, as well as justice, law, faith, migration and security.

The Centre offers the M.A. in Conflict Resolution and Mediterranean Security together with the Carter School. It engages in research on themes related to conflict resolution and organises public lectures, seminars and training sessions.

The M.A. in Conflict Resolution and Mediterranean Security is one of the postgraduate degrees within the International Collaborative Programmes.
