Summary

The Global Conflict and Peace programme is of particular interest and use to students and practitioners who want to understand the dynamics underlying contemporary forms of intrastate conflict and the various processes required to generate sustainable peace in places that have undergone civil war and violent intercommunal conflict. For this reason, the programme is designed to make students engage with the key debates, policies and concepts connected to global conflict and peace processes.

The programme will familiarise students with the theoretical and methodological insights from the fields of sociology, anthropology, political science and human rights in relation to the globalized character of contemporary intrastate conflict and to peacebuilding. Students are encouraged to engage with a range of conflicts and peace processes, themselves well known, in which these themes are explored empirically - Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Lebanon, Cyprus.
