About Peace and Development Work at Linnaeus University

Peace and Development Work is for students who are looking for a specialisation in issues linked to peace, development and international development co-operation. We focus on current research concerning development as well as the practical work carried out by international institutions, non-governmental organisations and social movements.

As a Master student, and in writing your final thesis, you have the possibility to work together with an organization or to conduct a field study in a developing country. The interdisciplinary approach of the progamme - where we also discuss how development issues can be solved in real politics - allows us to keep a close connection with people who are employed within our field and to learn from them. Moreover, most of our teachers have long experience from working with peace and development in developing countries.

In the program we also discuss communication issues and how they can influence international development.
