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.
