PEACE & CONFLICT RESOLUTION
FIE's summer Peace & Conflict program works with leading peace and justice scholars in Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland, and Jordan, offering you the opportunity to critically analyze and explore of some of the most daunting issues of our time.

Explore different paths to peace and the sensitive cultural and societal roots of 
conflict. Your program begins in Dublin with an introduction to peace and conflict theory, using Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland as a case study. In Amman, the focus turns to Middle Eastern issues as you examine how various countries in the region are addressing the Arab/Israeli conflict, regional conflicts such as those in Lebanon, Yemen or Iraq, and tribal conflicts.

Students may extend their stay in Amman to undertake intensive Arabic language study. Study Arabic with some of the most respected language teachers in the region from the Qasid Arabic Institute. Intensive coursework, combined with daily interactions with host families, helps students at all levels to increase their Arabic proficiency in a short period of time. Both Modern Standard Arabic and Colloquial Jordanian Arabic are offered at all levels from beginning to advanced.
