We are professionalizing peacebuilding
Together we’ll change the world.
In cooperation with Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), the 2016 Bologna Symposium will bring together the globe’s brightest young minds from top graduate institutions, international organizations, grassroots peace movements, and the armed services. Over a three-week period, participants will undergo intensive training by the field’s premier political leaders, academic experts, practitioners, and advocates in the practical skills necessary to foster peace and security in their communities and the world. In addition, participants may apply to earn graduate-level course credit from SAIS, one of the world’s top graduate schools for international affairs.
As a participant, you receive an IPSI Post-Graduate Certificate in “International Conflict Management” upon successful completion of the course. If you choose to undertake additional rigorous assignments you will earn an IPSI Post-Graduate Certificate in “International Conflict Management with Distinction.”
