WHY STUDY IN NORTHERN IRELAND?
Northern Ireland is an up and coming tourism destination, famed for our friendly locals, breathtaking landscapes, vibrant arts and cultural scene, amazing food and of course traditional ‘craic’! Queen’s University is located in the heart of Belfast, one of Europe’s most friendly and fashionable regional capitals, ranked the Lonely Planet’s number one destination to visit in 2018. The beauty is that it’s all packed into a compact city that is easy, and safe, to explore. You will study and live in the heart of the leafy Queen’s Quarter district, and your home from home for four weeks is packed with arts, culture and great food and drink establishments to suit every budget! Further afield across Northern Ireland, from the spectacular Giant’s Causeway to the historic walls of Derry-Londonderry, there are unique stories to tell, and our summer schools’ students will get a flavour of them throughout their four unforgettable weeks.
Located in a society emerging from conflict, the Summer School draws on experts from a range of disciplines including Law, Politics, International Relations, Criminology, Anthropology, Human Rights, Sociology, Film and Theatre.
The Summer School provides students with an overview of conflict transformation over four weeks through history, politics, religion and legal systems, focusing on:
• Conflict Transformation in local and global perspective
• Religion and Peacebuilding
• Intervention and Integration
• Transitional Justice
• Cross-border Co-operation
• Discourses and Dialogue in Conflict Transformation in the Arts
• Representing and Dealing with the Past
• Policing and Securitization
The Summer School will also offer the opportunity to put your learning into practice, combining academic study with engagement from different sectors of civic society and communities in Northern Ireland including discussion with academics, former combatants, former paramilitaries, religious leaders, political activists and practitioners as well as a range of staff-led site visits. The summer school programme analyses the history of political identities, conflicts and legacies that have framed the Northern Ireland Troubles and ensuing Good Friday Peace Agreement.
