Opening Paragraph

The PTD program has undergone a curriculum innovation which produced the launch of the Summer Peacebuilding Program (SPP), a three-week long intensive training program designed to bridge the theory and practice of building peace in societies that are emerging from conflict, violence or war.

The Summer Peacebuilding Program (SPP) builds on the 'Peace' dimension that was explored for two years (2013 and 2014) in the Peace Trade and Development program.
