The association “Rondine Cittadella della Pace” is an international organization that exists since 1997 in order to promote dialogue and conflict resolutions on different levels: interpersonal, political and international. The core project of Rondine is the cohabitation of young professionals who come from countries in conflict and belong to different cultures.

Specialized in research on political, cultural and social transformations, the Department of Social, Political and Cognitive Sciences of the University of Siena is committed to high-quality undergraduate and graduate instruction in a variety of disciplines. It hosts a vibrant community of social and political scientists.


Contribution of expert practitioners in the humanitarian sector
Various practitioners from the international, non-governmental organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF- Doctors Without Borders) will collaborate as instructors in some of the courses, seminars and workshops offered during the master program.
