Certificate in International Conflict Transformation

From Academic Year 2018 – 2019 Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici offers a new one-semester Certificate Program in which students of different career paths learn how to analyze and evaluate conflict from an international perspective.

This one-semester fifteen-credit certificate offers an intensive study program in which students of different career paths learn how to analyze and evaluate conflict from an international perspective. The certificate takes place in Rome, Italy’s capital and a city well situated to provide international knowledge and insights, located as it is at a major geographical intersection.

Through five courses, students become better informed about global politics and can measure the difference between principles and practice. The courses generally take a case-based and current affairs approach, and class sessions are highly interactive. The three core courses explore the nature of conflict and of violence, the workings of international humanitarian assistance, and modern strategies for resolving (or transforming) conflict.

Students have a choice of two track courses in which they further pursue closely related topics: the real effects of globalization; the anatomy of terrorism; the operations of the UN and other organizations in Rome.


PREREQUISITES: please note that the LdM ICTC Certificate may require advanced skills. We encourage students to look for prerequisites in the descriptions below and in the current LdM Course Schedules page (Spring 2019 session).
