About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101571 - Peace & Development Project. The Humanitarian and Peace Studies Specialisation focuses upon the inequities of power, wealth and opportunity, and the results of conflicts both local and international. These inequities and conflicts result in marginalization and suffering of minority groups. This unit is the Capstone Unit in this major and considers the nature of inequalities as they manifest in both social and work environments. The focus is upon developing programs of redress for these inequalities and strategies for peaceful resolutions.
