Baronness Nuala O’Loan, DBE, will launch my school’s new Master’s (M.Phil.) programme in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation on Thursday 21 October 2010 from 4.45-6.00 p.m. at Trinity College Dublin at Belfast, located at 683 Antrim Road.
We are excited about the new programme, which has its first cohort of 20 students this year. They have come from as far afield as Japan, Germany, Spain, and the United States, as well as from England, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Baroness O’Loan will speak on ‘The Importance of Studying Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation.’
Baroness O’Loan is Special Envoy to Timor-Leste for the Republic of Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and the former Northern Ireland Police Ombudsman (1999-2007).
The M.Phil. in Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation has been designed to suit the needs of specialists already working in the fields of conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as those new to the study of conflict resolution and reconciliation.
Courses are offered at Trinity’s specialist cross-border School in Belfast, as well as some options at week-long residential courses at the Glencree Centre for Reconciliation in County Wicklow, and through TIDES at Corrymeela in Ballycastle on the north Antrim coast.
Light refreshments will be served from 4.45 and Baroness O’Loan will speak at 5.15.
The event will also mark the launch of a new website, www.conflicttransformation.ie.
