This is the third year that the study abroad trip has been offered. The course focuses on post-conflict transition, “dealing with the past,” contested memories, and the legacy of human rights abuses for various sections of Northern Ireland society.

Today, Northern Ireland is going through a cultural and artistic renaissance as it emerges from decades of conflict, resistance, and armed struggle known locally as “the Troubles.”

This Spring Break Study Abroad Program offers students the unique opportunity to explore human rights, law, and justice through an intensive nine-day study abroad experience in post-conflict Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland.

The program includes visits to universities, law institutes, justice centers, and key historic sites.

Through interactions with local scholars, social activists, students, and peace-building and human rights groups, students gain firsthand knowledge of peacekeeping and peace-building, human rights and peace activism, and the politics of truth, justice, and reconciliation in post-conflict Northern Ireland.
