Syllabus:

War and conflict is as old a phenomenon as history itself. However, there has been a marked shift in the predominant forms of war in recent decades. While inter-state war appears to be decreasing, civil war has been on the rise, particularly in the developing world. This course analyses the sources of division in these countries, how they manifest structurally within societies, and the factors that can cause them to erupt vio lently into armed conflict or terrorism. The course further examines the policy options that are available to the international community to manage and address these conflicts, and the measures that communities directly affected by conflict can adopt to promote lasting peace. The course has a strong focus on conflict resolution measures and policy options that can be practically implemented. It also incorporates an analysis of specific instances of conflict and international interventions. This course will be of interest to anyone who wishes to develop their knowledge of international development, international relations and conflict resolution, and rid the developing world of war and violence.
