Offered in cooperation with AMIDEAST, FIE's five-week Summer Program in Peace and Conflict Resolution will bring you to three of the world's most interesting capital cities: Dublin, Belfast, and Amman. The program begins in Dublin with the course The Life Cycle of Peace and Conflict: Lessons Learned in Northern Ireland. The class uses Northern Ireland as a case study for exploring how those peace and conflict theories translate to Middle Eastern issues. A study tour to Belfast contextualizes the case study. After two weeks spent in Dublin, the group leaves for Amman to begin their second course, Conflict Resolution and Management: Beyond the Arab-Israeli Conflict. This course will address the impact of cultural and societal factors on conflict resolution and management, focusing on case studies across the Middle Eastern region. Housing for this portion of the program is with host families. There is an optional four week Arabic language program extension in Amman.
