I could meet people who had never been possible to access if I were in Japan and spending the whole summer inside the library. Personally I have been interested in the political attitude of young generations in post-conflict societies, and now I am back here at the Institute to further investigate the topic in this vibrantly regenerating city.”

Rachel Green

3546.jpg “I chose this course because of its focus on interdisciplinarity and its comparative approach to conflict transformation and social justice. Its location in Belfast was also a determining factor for me. I’m interested in studying the role of women in social conflict in different countries – both their involvement in the conflict and the impact of the conflict on their well-being.”

Bronagh Bradley

3547.jpg "I chose to study at the Institute for several reasons. Social Justice issues are at the core of my political beliefs and the opportunity to further explore these as a post graduate appealed to me. Also, growing up in Belfast and having an interest in politics means I want to be part of the generation which brings about a transformation to our post conflict society. The new Institute at QUB provides an opportunity to combine my two passions and hopefully in the future bring about a change to our society and conflict zones further afield."
