Bar-Ilan University is home to many leading scholars and practitioners in the field of conflict resolution. This four-week interdisciplinary summer program, taught in English, offers four graduate-level courses that focus on relevant identity-based conflicts and how to creatively engage them. Courses can also be taken individually. Students from all disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities (including conflict resolution practitioners) learn theoretical insights and practical training that have a wide range of professional relevance.
Launched in the year 2000, the Conflict Management, Resolution and Negotiation Graduate Program, which oversees this Summer Program, is characterized by a distinguished faculty body that merges theory and practice. Its students come from all walks of Israeli Jewish, Muslim and Christian society. It sponsors research, training programs, and international conferences, as well as operates a Mediation Center. The program also publishes the International Journal of Conflict Engagement and Resolution.
