The National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (NCPACS) was made possible by a $1.25m donation from the Aotearoa New Zealand Peace and Conflict Studies Centre Trust. The Trust's gift was made through the University's Leading Thinkers Initiative and was therefore matched by the Government under the Partnerships for Excellence scheme - lifting the total to $2.5m.
The NCPACS is New Zealand's first Centre to combine global cross-disciplinary expertise on the issues of development, peacebuilding and conflict transformation. It offers postgraduate programs at the Masters and PhD level, conducts high level research on the causes of violent conflict and conditions for sustainable peace, and provides training, evaluation expertise, and expert advice to government and non-governmental organizations engaged in peacebuilding and humanitarian intervention. It is a theory, research and practice centre, located within the Division of Humanities.
Applications are invited from international and domestic students for two three-year PhD scholarships in Peace and Conflict Studies. Applications are invited from international students for three two-year Postgraduate Diploma/Master of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies. Applications are invited from Ma-ori/Moriori descent for a two-year Postgraduate Diploma/Masters scholarship. For more information please contact:
