Description

This course also enables you to examine and analyse the various issues and dynamics that shape and influence conflict in the modern world, as well as explore the practical tools available to manage and resolve conflict.
What will you study?
The course is split into three stages. In the first stage you will look at the theory and history behind international conflict at all levels of interaction, from the interpersonal to the international. You will also have the chance to examine the way in which conflict manifests itself in the contemporary international system and the techniques available to manage and resolve violent disputes, including peacekeeping, mediation and negotiation. In the second stage you will examine practical examples of ways in which conflict has been managed by studying several specific case studies. You will also explore a number of key questions relating to conflict, such as the role of religion and gender in conflict, weapons proliferation, the function of outside actors, and the effects of conflict on civilian populations.In stage three you will build on what you have learnt and apply your skills in a piece of original research of 12,000–15,000 words.
