In Peace and Development Studies we discuss questions around peace and security, development theory and international development co-operation, international political economy, armed conflicts and conflict resolution. The course offers a broad introduction for understanding of international conditions and global change. A current theme is how global and local conditions are interconnected, and how different levels try to influence the world order. The mode of work is interdisciplinary and group assignments dealing with contemporary issues are common in teaching. A case study with a roleplay on conlict resolution in the world society is part of the course.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
