Pré requis

No mandatory pre-requisites. Students will be invited to the course site and asked to read two preparatory documents and to watch a Ted Talk to frame the context of the class

Objectifs du cours

At the end of the course, the student should be able to :

Be equipped with an advanced understanding of international conflict resolution
•Understand the distinction between liberal and local peace building
•Develop greater awareness of the roles and relationships peace actors develop and foster in post-conflict environments
•Be equipped with an expert understanding of the conflict transformation spectrum.

Contenu du cours

This course will provide students with the theory and practice to engage in international conflict management. It situates the discussion in the aftermath of violent warfare and therefore puts emphasis on the ending of hostilities and the consolidation of short-term peace and long-term nationbuilding. It will relate to the many levels and multi-dimensional scopes of international mediation, incl. tactics, actors, and dynamics at the negotiation table. Based on applied theory and real world scenarios provided by the course instructor, students will be immersed into the complexities of conflict resolution and peace building on an international scale. Whether Darfur, Syria, Myanmar or Colombia, students' awareness and understanding about interdependent issues at the international level will be raised.
