Teaching Chair on Peace Education

UCSIA started up a new teaching chair at the University of Antwerp as a continuation of the already existing ‘training for peace education’. The teaching chair results from a cooperation with the Center for Peace of the Province and the City of Antwerp and the University of Antwerp. Each edition will examine an aspect of peace in its manifold manifestations and subject it to a scholarly multidisciplinary investigation.
