Introduction to Peace and Conflict Management BGP-001

IGNOU via Swayam


The Programme, is focused on the understanding of peace and conflict resolution, to deal with conflict in the society particularly in Gandhian perspective. The giant strides man has made in science and technology have failed to engender peace of mind in the individuals, harmony in society, and peace among nations; nor have they helped in liquidating poverty, ignorance, and exploitation. Global warming and climate change, a direct consequence of destructive use of nature, threatens the very survival of the biosphere. Man has become a victim of his own creation. Many thinkers and activists, in the world today, have begun to turn to the life, thoughts and methods of Mahatma Gandhi to look for solutions for above mention. Activists and thinkers of younger generation in the world are looking to the alternative path that Gandhi showed in the hope that his message and mission are of crucial significance to the survival of mankind. The programme you are going to pursue develops these objectives. We are sure you will be benefitted and be better prepared for contribution towards peace in the society at large.Course Credit-4
