PEAC 077. Gun Violence Prevention: Peace Studies and Action

The course aims to bridge gaps between peace research, theory, and implementation by encouraging students to move between each as we examine the problem of gun violence, study effective interventions, consider nonviolent ways of conducting conflict, and assess the challenges of developing and sustaining effective peace work. While developing a nuanced understanding of the problem of gun violence, we also aim to get close to the experience of peacemakers and victims by consulting with and visiting local organizations collaborate with a local gun violence prevention organization to contribute to the work of the organization and develop our own analytical and research skills. Discussion over course readings will also be emphasized. This course will encourage collaboration and active participation in delivering the content of the course.
