The Class of Nonviolence
In addition to the eight-week " Class of Nonviolence ," Colman McCarthy also has prepared readings for a 16-week "University" course. The "University" essays are not harder to read or understand than the 8-week class: it is just MORE, and divided into 16 sessions to conform with the typical college semester.

Liberal Peacebuilding as Zombie: Workaround Strategies | UNRESTMAGAZINE | Engaging Systems of ViolenceWarning: This article is not for the faint of heart or “do-gooders.” It is written so as to engender (pun intended), unrest.

The Hampshire-based Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies (PAWSS) is a multidisciplinary educational program designed to stimulate student and faculty interest in the study of critical international issues, especially those connecting issues of conflict and the environment. Pursuing the study of peace and world security studies at Hampshire can allow for a wide range of self-designed concentrations--for example, an analysis of the relationship between militarization, economic development, and human rights in a particular region, or an investigation into traditional and innovative strategies for peacemaking and conflict resolution. PAWSS is a highly diversified program entailing the development of new courses, the sponsorship of public lectures and symposia, and the publication of specialized resource materials.
