Holocaust Studies

UHaifa International is Creating the Peace Makers of Tomorrow

“Peace and conflict management has become a 21st century must-have skill set,” says Dr. Ran Kuttner, head of UHaifa International’s Master of the Arts in Peace and Conflict Management. “As we can see on-interpersonal, organizational, communal, national, and global levels, it is becoming increasingly crucial to have professionals who can bridge gaps between diverse stakeholders and help transform conflict into dialogue.”

The first program in Israel to align with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal’s (SDGs), UHaifa International’s MA in Peace and Conflict Management is especially consistent with goal number 16: promotion of peace and justice. “By default, all SDG goals need conflict management skills to put them into action, and this is exactly what our program is about,” Kuttner asserts.
