Welcome! - UNM Peace Studies

Raison d’être

UNM’s Peace and Justice Studies Program continues to promote sustainable peacebuilding education through innovative approaches to transforming conflict, justice, and healing and violence prevention. Jamal Martin, Director, Peace and Justice Studies says, “Righting the wrongs of structural violence and transforming the world for safety and hope remains a vital element within our integrated curriculum that encourages mindfulness and divergent thinking for building strategic skills for the local, national and global settings. Moreover, students who develop peacebuilding expertise through UNM’s institutional platform cultivate active practice, education, and investment in elevating sustainable environmentally and ethical domestic, international, and global peace policies. The delivery of peace as a global public good is why we share and cooperate!”
