FRONT PAGE COURSES & SEMINARS PEOPLE
The Research School in Peace and Conflict is a collaboration between PRIO, the University of Oslo (UiO) and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and was officially opened on April 11, 2011. It is located at PRIO and is rooted in a common goal by all partners to offer the best possible research training for the next generation of peace and conflict scholars. This is done by building on and expanding networks and expertise at the partner institutions. The collaboration is characterized by multidisciplinary approaches to peace and conflict issues, international profile and outlook, and research excellence. 14 students were admitted in 2011 and another 12 in 2012.
The school offers focused thematic courses (f.ex. on Societal Security) and methodology courses (Quantitative; Qualitative, Fieldwork; GIS applications). In addition, there is a firm emphasis on all the skills needed for a career in research: academic writing, presentations, project development and dissemination, with tailor-made symposia and regular courses for all students. The Research School is a cornerstone in the collaboration between UiO, NTNU and PRIO.
