PACS 11001 Into to Conflict Management

Course Name: PACS 11001 Into to Conflict Management

Description: Our lives are surrounded and defined by different forms of conflict, from the interpersonal to the international kind. Inspired by a vision of social justice and engagement, this class is designed to train students manage and transform conflicts constructively. With a little practice, we all can become assertive problem-solvers, firm but fair negotiators, effective mediators, and when necessary, initiators of nonviolent action and social change (think #BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo, Hong Kong protests). Our time in Florence would be a good opportunity to explore some local issues that ail Italy and Europe (national identity; migrant crisis; rise of authoritarian politics, etc.) and the rest of the world. This is a Kent core course and will likely involve field trips in Florence.
