International Relations & Policy

Canadian and International FlagsForeign affairs and international policy work requires a precise and insightful grasp of evolving interactions between foreign governments, private industry, NGOs and citizens in both a National and International context.  In negotiating dynamic global relationships between foreign nations entities, international relations professionals must consider not only the political and cultural dynamics abroad but also the impact on national policies and the public service function of its own government as they guide program stakeholders and global relationships.

Globally, nations intersect across all sectors. The international relations portfolio and skill set increasingly permeates private and public sector industries making the role of the qualified international relationship professional an essential and fundamental role in governmental and intergovernmental affairs both at home and abroad.

Integrative Peacebuilding program

At the heart of the Integrative Peacebuilding program is a commitment to human security and well-being. Integrative Peacebuilding (IPB) both informs and draws upon emerging and past international practices. It acknowledges the value of co-creation of the structures, systems, dynamics, and conditions that are meant to effect change in peacebuilding and intervention efforts. The IPB Program is designed for people already engaging in efforts to bring sustaining peace into conflict and post-conflict areas. Based on the premise that integration is more effective than fragmentation, participants will develop the confidence and skills required for trust-building, repairing relationships, critical reflection, cross-cultural communication and dialogue, and integrating multiple parties and points of view.

The Integrative Peacebuilding (IPB) program enables passionate individuals to address profound challenges facing fragile and conflict-affected states.
