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. As we develop our own analytical and research skills, we also aim to center the experience of peacemakers and victims by collaborating with a local gun violence prevention organization. Discussion over course readings will also be emphasized. This course will encourage collaboration and active participation in delivering the content of the course.
