The University of Bologna together with the University of Graz, The New
Bulgarian University of Sofia and the University of Primorska are
launching a new International PhD Programme in "Diversity Management and 
Governance" leading to a Joint Degree.

The Programme in a nutshell

The three-year English-taught Programme offers specialized
interdisciplinary and comparative academic training in the study of
various forms of diversity, be it ethnic, cultural, linguistic,
regional, religious, social or sexual orientation, and its management.
Conflict prevention and management theories, reconstruction and 
reconciliation of divided societies after violent conflicts and
political tensions, integration policies and the establishment of good
governance throughout Europe are in focus in this Joint PhD Programme.

To ensure the students' highest mobility the Programme requires that PhD
Candidates spend at least two semesters in one of the partner
