IDC - MA in Government: Diplomacy & Conflict Studies

Program Description

Want to equip yourself to deal with international conflicts and problems in today's globalized world? The MA in Diplomacy & Conflict Studies at IDC Herzliya combines the theory and practice of contemporary diplomacy with the study of conflict.  You will gain an understanding of how conflicts and wars develop and how they may be managed or resolved, strategically, diplomatically or informally.
The program emphasizes the acquisition of tools for dealing with conflict: negotiation, mediation, arbitration, public diplomacy, and track-two engagement, as well as the psychological, cultural and legal aspects of conflict. 

*Please note that receiving a Masa scholarship does not imply automatic acceptance to IDC.  The IDC application is a separate process and acceptance is dependent on meeting academic criteria.
