New Program Offers a Fresh Perspective Backed by Legal Examination of Historic and Recent Conflicts, Globally and Regionally.

An International M.A./LL.M. Degree Program in Conflict Resolution:  International Law and Conflict Resolution.  Hebrew University’s Faculty of Law, and the Swiss Center for Conflict Research, Management and Resolution at the Faculty of Social Sciences have combined forces to offer graduate students from around the globe, a multidisciplinary program that studies the sources and causes of domestic and external con­flicts and explores their management and resolution from different disciplinary viewpoints, including international relations, law, political science, social psychology, communication and media studies, and sociology.

The Faculty of Law and the Swiss Center for Conflict Research at the Faculty of Social Sciences announced the launch of an International M.A. / LL.M. Degree Program in Conflict Resolution: International Law and Conflict Resolution (ILCR), which will be offered at Hebrew University’s Mt. Scopus Campus in Jerusalem, in English, over the course of one academic year (two semesters), beginning in the 2017-18 academic year (registration is now open).  Students will study under past and present legal advisors to international organizations, members of international expert bodies, government and NGO lawyers and leading academics from Israel and abroad, who have first-hand experience with some of the toughest conflicts in the modern era and offer social, political, economic, psychological and legal perspectives on conflicts and their resolution.  Courses delve into subjects ranging from discussion of specific topics such as regional water rights and the psychology of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, to theoretical and practical courses, such as the art and science of negotiation and the role of law in conflict resolution.

A Combined Approach to Conflict Resolution

The newly formed M.A. / LL.M. in International Law and Conflict Resolution addresses the need to advance our understanding of conflicts and their resolution. Conflicts are multifaceted and need to be considered from many points of view, such as humanitarian relief, social and moral responsibility, political agendas, and, of course, legal aspects.  Recognizing the importance of all the pieces of the puzzle, we have put together a program that gives our students a rounded, multidisciplinary program of study.  By doing so, we hope to uniquely prepare them to make meaningful contributions to managing and resolving conflicts.

-          Between Cyber Wars and Internet Governance
