What is the “religion” that is linked to conflicts and their resolution? How does this “religion” explain, create and sustain conflicts? How does it offer means of preventing or easing conflicts? These questions lie at the centre of the International Master’s programme in Religion, Conflict and Dialogue. The RCD programme discusses the many dimensions of religions, conflicts and dialogue through theory and practice. At the very beginning of the programme, each student will identify a particular conflict situation, ongoing or past, in which religion has presumably played a role. Throughout the studies the student will regularly present his/her research in a variety of formats. Applied studies introduce students to the process of converting theoretical knowledge into the practical know-how and skills required in working life. RCD studies are taught and lead by the teachers of the Faculty of Theology as well as external expert lecturers in cooperation with actors from the field of peace mediation and different humanitarian aid and development cooperation organizations. The RCD programme is ideal for students who wish to pursue a career in positions demanding expertise in the areas of conflict analysis, reconciliation processes, dialogue promotion, theology and religion.
