Webinar Series - MSc Political Psychology - 13 Dec 2016

Youth Peacebuilding in a Setting of Political Divide:

An Insight into MSc (Masters) in Political Psychology at Queen's University, Belfast

This short webinar took place on Tuesday 13th December 2016 at 1600

Laura K Taylor - Lecturer on the MSc in Political Psychology, Fellow of the Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice, and Associate Fellow of the Centre for Effective Social Interventions - was our host.

The webinar, lasting around 45 minutes, briefly outlined our MSc in Political Psychology at Queen's, describing the varied educational and professional backgrounds of a typical student cohort; our students come from the UK, Ireland and EU countries, as well as from across the world including the US, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Included in the Webinar, Laura gave a short presentation, typical of normal lecture content, on the ‘Youth Peacebuilding in Setting of Political Divide.’ She successfully defined peacebuilding and explored ways we can promote constructive agency among youth people in a ‘post-accord’ generation in Northern Ireland.

The presentation then concluded with further details, briefly describing the programme, together with an outline of the personal research module for the MSc Dissertation. Attendees had the opportunity to submit written questions, and Laura answered each question received before finishing the link-up.
