Conflict Resolution Studies



Conflict Resolution Studies (CRS) seeks to understand the nature and dynamics of human conflict, and to look at appropriate alternatives for dealing with conflict in ways which develop healthy relationships and prevent violence. Conflicts are analyzed from an interdisciplinary perspective together with topics such as violence, power, justice, peace, communication, culture, war, conflict transformation and dispute resolution. CRS prepares students to understand and interact constructively in response to personal, local and global conflict situations.

Conflict Resolution Studies can be taken alone or it can be effectively combined with another program at The University of Winnipeg, such as Business Administration, Economics, Environmental Studies, International Development Studies, Politics, or Sociology.
