Auckland University of Technology

Faculty:Full/Part-time Programmes
Field of Study:Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution


New Zealand is becoming known as a peace mediator. In 2014, New Zealand was rated as number four on the peace-index, and we have participated in many peacekeeping operations with the United Nations. In this major you explore conflict resolution at an interpersonal, community, organisational, state and global/international level.

This holistic and integrated approach will give you a solid base for a wide range of roles that include conflict resolution. You identify causes of conflict, and develop practical negotiation, mediation and facilitation skills. Papers draw on multidisciplinary perspectives to conflict and conflict resolution, and include a range of examples including the Treaty of Waitangi. You learn through case studies and a close examination of contemporary conflicts.
