The Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS) is envisioned to bring Peace into the society by incorporating alternative conflict resolution mechanisms to the curriculum. The University of Peshawar is the pioneering institution in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa offering academic programs under the auspices of the Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS) with the objective of producing both Innovative Researches and offering Academic Programs at the under-graduate and post-graduate levels.
The Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies aims to attract and develop those groups of students who wish to deepen their understandings of the processes involved in conflicts and are interested in sharpening their knowledge of how to manage conflicts constructively. It offers the conjectural foundations that emboss the essential social psychological routes involved in understanding and managing conflicts at all levels i.e. interpersonal, intergroup, organizational, and international.
