Greetings from the Director

Welcome to the Program on Justice and Peace Studies (JUPS). We are a dynamic program, one that unflinchingly addresses the critical issues of our time. JUPS students explore patterns and processes of war and peace, violence and nonviolence, and injustice and justice through an interdisciplinary synergy of scholarly engagement and practical application, doing so at all levels from the interpersonal to the international. JUPS strives to uphold and further the mission of Georgetown University by fostering a “commitment to justice and the common good” and instilling an ethic that encourages people “to be responsible and active participants in civic life and to live generously in service to others.” We invite you to learn more about our program and to share in the important work of building a more just and peaceful world.
