PICS | About

Unique to The Pearson Institute, Pearson International Conflict Seminars (PICS) are faculty- and staff-led international programs that focus on critical issues of global conflict. Harnessing the vast international network of The Pearson Institute, students engage with government officials, NGOs, community leaders, locals, and more, in order to gain a holistic perspective of conflict in the region. Traveling with a specialist for each region provides an academic underpinning to each program. International Conflict Seminars are open to students looking for an intensive international experience and seeking to gain a realistic understanding of conflicts from the perspective of those who have experienced them, and those who have been active participants in negotiation, peace, and reconciliation processes.

Berlin | October 2019

In October 2019, students from Harris Public Policy traveled to Berlin with The Pearson Institute to join the second annual Pearson Global Forum, Beyond Walls | Deconstructing Conflict. Just weeks before the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, this seminar was a reflection on the prospects for change once envisioned, and a look forward beyond existing walls - both symbolic and literal - to deconstruct conflict in order to find paths toward resolution, peace and stability.
