Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution at the University of Duhok
The Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies (CPCRS) is the home of teaching, research, and practice in peacebuilding at the University of Duhok (UoD). CPCRS is affiliated with UoD’s new undergraduate Department of Peace and Human Rights Studies, which began accepting students in fall 2016.
The Center previously facilitated the Master of Arts program in Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies, the only degree program in all of Iraq dedicated to teaching students about the emerging theory and practice of peacebuilding, and is facilitating the higher diploma program in peacebuilding, which is run by the UoD Department of Peace and Human Rights Studies.
CPCRS conducts research on subjects related to peace and conflict, hosts seminars and workshops with local and national stakeholders in politics and civil society, and engages with international partners to develop new knowledge that can contribute to increased peace in the Kurdistan Region and in Iraq more broadly.
