About the Course

The course deals with the analysis and resolution of political and violent (or potentially violent) conflicts. Causes and dynamics of conflicts are discussed, as are actors, interests and structures. Moreover, the course looks at strategies and approaches for managing, resolving and transforming conflicts, and analyses the challenges and outcomes of such strategies. Key dilemmas and debates in conflict resolution are critically discussed, including the tensions between peace and justice, and between international interventions and local actors. The course combines theoretical and conceptual perspectives with the study of concrete cases and methods of conflict analysis and resolution.
