The Centre for Peace Studies (CPS), founded in 2002, emphasises interdisciplinary approaches to peace and conflict studies. It combines a High North perspective with a focus on comparative Global South issues in producing high-quality knowledge and competencies of theoretical and practical value. The centre’s activities revolve around the Master of Peace and Conflict Transformation programme (MPCT), Research and Outreach activities.
