Program Description:
OVERVIEW     

FIE’s summer Peace & Conflict program works with leading peace and justice scholars in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and Jordan, offering you the opportunity to critically analyze and explore some of the most daunting issues of our time. 

Explore different paths to peace and the sensitive cultural and societal roots of conflict. Your program begins in Dublin with an introduction to peace and conflict theory, using Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland as a case study. In Amman, the focus turns to Middle Eastern issues as you examine how various countries in the region are addressing the Arab/Israeli conflict, regional conflicts such as those in Lebanon, Yemen or Iraq, and tribal conflicts.

FIE is proud to partner with AMIDEAST  in Jordan to offer our summer peace and conflict program. For more than two decades, AMIDEAST field offices in the Middle East have supported study abroad programs organized by US colleges and universities and international education organizations such as FIE. AMIDEAST strives to develop students’ intercultural and global competence and provide students with safe, secure, and healthy living and learning environments.

Following the conclusion of the Conflict and the Struggle for Peace program, a student may opt to extend his/her stay in Amman and continue study in the Arabic language.
