Master in Conflict Resolution, Peace and Development University for Peace
This master's program aims to train leaders with the elements of an integral human development for the 21st century. The essential nucleus of this formation will make it possible to understand that the conflicts we face must be transformed and solved peacefully, because that is the only way to lay the foundations for peace. The combination of these elements allows access to development in all its facets: human development, sustainable and sustainable. For this, our vision supports the notions of the United Nations that peace, human development and the transformation and resolution of conflicts must contain transversally elements related to gender equity and the principle of non-discrimination, be this racial , social, conscience, cult, or other. These statements are considered prerequisites, not only for development but for the survival of the planet. That is why this program addresses these three facets within the four fundamental pillars of the United Nations: Peace, Human Rights, Sustainable Development and the Rule of Law.
