TIPSY (Tampere International Peace Student’s Yawl) is a student association at the University of Tampere which represents the students of the Master’s Degree Programme in Peace, Mediation, and Conflict Research as well as other international master’s students in the Global Society Framework (Global and Transnational Sociology, Public Choice, Comparative Social Policy).
As the student association for the “Peace” and GSF Master’s Degree students we aim to represent the academic interests of the students while working with the Tampere Peace Research Institute (TAPRI) staff. Our board members convey our interests and issues to the university staff through steering committee meetings and program feedback sessions. We aim to be influential in these committees by discussing ideas for new courses and furthering the development of the program.
Additionally, we represent the social interests of the TIPSY members by organizing social events that bring together students of the Peace program as well as students from other programs at the University of Tampere. Our events are open to any students interested in the topics of our events.
TIPSY holds regular (usually bi-weekly) meetings to update all members on the ongoing activities of the TIPSY board regarding academic affairs and social events. For incoming students who wish to join the TIPSY student association the membership requirement is a one time fee of €5.
