The evolution and escalation of conflict in our times is undoubtedly one of the most important challenges we have as a society.
Simply taking look at Malta’s rich history as an island being surrounded by the Mediterranean sea gives individuals a unique point of view when it comes to the significance of understanding, analysing and resolving conflicts. But while our responsibility to contain this through mediation, negotiation and peace-building is shared, contributing to the scientific discussion on this issue and ultimately transforming cultures is a quality of the select few.
Welcome to the University of Malta (UM).
Our Centre for the Study & Practice of Conflict Resolution offers a dual Masters’ degree in Conflict Resolution and Mediterranean Security, which is a great opportunity for students to expand their knowledge in this field.

5. You will have the opportunity to engage with an international team of experts in conflict resolution, negotiations, security, identity, human rights and related fields.
