Peace and its many aspects

Not suggesting you apply, but…

I just thought this was interesting and probably a positive sign.  York University (in the UK) is a very good place, and we see here that studying issues related to peace and post-conflict peace building is an important part of the curriculum–and that the relevant department is expanding!  Cool!
