Beschreibung

There are many opportunities for pursuing a career in the field of Intercultural Conflict Management in both the public and private sectors. Apparently, some organisations have lately started to show specific interest in hiring intercultural conflict managers, but still many will be interested in someone who has these abilities in addition to the requirements of a more conventional job description and qualifications gained through previous education and work experience.
Gerichtet an: The M.A. programme will be of most interest to individuals who are professionally active or have an academic interest in environments characterised by cultural diversity and conflict. These elements are frequently encountered in multi-ethnic contexts where competing group interests exist and where individuals have regulatory/control responsibilities requiring additional intercultural competence and mediation abilities.

Themenkreis

The M.A. programme is a response to the challenges of conflict, cultural diversity, forced and voluntary migration, violations of human rights and human exploitation. These issues have heightened tensions and social injustices for a growing number of individuals and groups at local, national and international levels. Thus there is an urgent need for professionals who can act effectively on issues of conflict management and social justice in multicultural contexts. Instruction on the M.A. programme is informed by principles and values reflecting an inclusive and people-centred approach with a goal toward social transformation and the realisation of human rights.
