Department of Peace and Conflict Studies
The Department of Peace and Conflict Studies promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching on the causes of conflict and the conditions that affect conflict resolution and peace. Research projects and other activities focus on the resolution of conflict with a view to attaining just societies.
The department aims to facilitate dialogue between individuals, groups or communities who are concerned with conditions of positive peace, whether in interpersonal relationships, community relations, within organisations and nations, or with reference to international relations.
On Friday 11 November at Sydney Town Hall, Naomi Klein – Canadian award-winning author, journalist, and activist – will receive the 2016 Sydney Peace Prize.
