Peace through Tourism University of Sydney Course

Enrolments are now being taken for the University of Sydney’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies course, Peace Through Tourism (PACS6910). 


This postgraduate Winter School unit of study, which was offered for the first time last year, is the only course of its kind in Australia.


The course will be held from July 13 to July 19, 2006 and there are twenty places available.
