Welcome to the European Wasatia Graduate School for Peace and Conflict Resolution

The trilateral European Wasatia Ph.D. Programme for Peace and Conflict Resolution aims to analyse conceptions of and conditions for reconciliation in the Middle East. It refers to overarching discourses from different academic sciences (Middle East and Political Sciences, Philosophy, Sociology, Jura, Theology, Literature and Media Studies) and with regard to the German context (dealing with a dual past). Other international areas of conflict (Northern Ireland, South Africa, Balkan region) are considered relevant for initiating mutual learning processes among the Ph.D. students. The analysis of social, legal, political and (inter-)religious conditions for reconciliation is linked to learning practical competences for dialogue (e.g. holocaust education, scriptural reasoning). In the context of societal challenges, which are present on the academic and civil society level (especially in regards to antisemitism), the programme shall contribute to the training of disseminators who are empowered for dialogue.
