About EUPeace

The European University for Peace, Justice and Inclusive Society, EUPeace, evolves out of nine core member universities that have committed their strategic international outlook in teaching, research and administration in higher education to the the core ideas and values expressed in the jointly created EUPeace Mission Statement. The interactions achieved by creating the EUPeace Alliance are particularly adapted to scale up internationalisation efforts under the prefix of fostering a peaceful, just, and inclusive European landscape, at various levels. While each of our institutions has active programs with numerous international peers, their impact tends to be limited to those staff or students who are involved in physical mobility. Through EUPeace, we can radically scale up internationalisation at two levels: (a) enhance our overall strategic impact and visibility, (b) internationalise the whole community, whether physically mobile or not - thereby actively shaping the new generation of European citizens.

The EUPeace Alliance is comprised of institutions that are similar in size, location and mission within their respective national ecosystems. We are a synergetic mix of universities, characterized by our territorial embeddedness, concern for impact and deep attention to the quality of student life within and beyond our campuses. We have come together, based on long-standing cooperation experiences as well as newly formed ties within the EUPeace universities; reaching students, doctoral candidates, and academic and administrative staff all the way from Germany to Turkey, covering the entirety of the European continent and reaching into Asia. We embrace and foster the unique geographic distribution and the implications these geographic roots bring to EUPeace: our institutions are located in regions with a lot of internal diversity and sometimes a still recent history of conflict. The diversity of our student body and staff is itself an essential tool on which EUPeace will build to nourish its teaching and learning vision: it offers the perfect opportunity to expose our community to a wide range of cultures, opinions, situations and thus provides a concrete, operational training ground to give flesh to the ideals of Peace, Justice, and Inclusive Societies.
