The interdisciplinary Minor in Human Rights and Conflict Resolution will explore the different ways in which peace and justice can be achieved. Core issues studied include: the legal, cultural, social, and political basis of human rights, the causes and nature of violence, societal conflict, and war between states, and methods of conflict management, peace implementation, and reconciliation on the personal, group, national, and international levels. The minor facilitates the discovery of ways to overcome conflict and work towards peace. Critical thinking and interdisciplinary approaches link issues of conflict, conflict resolution, and peace with human rights, the rule of law, and social justice.
