Envisioning the Future of Peace Together at ICU?

ICU sits right on the former factory ground where aircraft engines were designed and manufactured during wartime. However, since the end of World War II, ICU made strides to educate world leaders in peace-making, not in manufacturing weapons of destruction, hence providing the solid foundation for Peace Studies. In fact, the study of peace has become the cornerstone of our university. With clear visions for peace, we attempt to understand the structural issues such as war and conflicts, poverty, and human oppression, as well as historical origins thereof, and to explore peaceful strategies for conflict resolution as part of the interdisciplinary program.
