What Students Say

"I believe learning about Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping is invaluable. You cannot put a price or time limit on beginning to understand the skills which we need to promote a peaceful world to reside in. We all grew up being taught that the world is a cruel place, and this attitude perpetuates the problem. There's only room for solutions, and by learning about UCP we can focus on the skills which all humans need in order to progress as a species."

"I first learned about Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping working with Nonviolence Peaceforce in South Sudan. Having studied conflict and seen the impact of post-conflict zones years after civil war ended, I found it extremely eyeopening to not only learn the theory behind UCP methods, but using those methods on the ground and seeing it work on the ground during violent conflict proved to me that it works. For me, its value lies within the flexibility of the methods, and the ability to adapt those methods when the situation changes.
