Summary

The International Conflict and Security MA at the Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) is structured to introduce you to the key concepts and theories necessary to understand the features of contemporary international conflict and security issues. At the same time, it gives the opportunity, through practical and case study-driven modules, to learn about conflict prevention and early warning, as well as the appropriate ways of managing conflicts peacefully through negotiation and mediation.

The programme also provides you with training specific to working in the field of conflict analysis, such as preparing reports on specific conflicts or security issues, drafting recommendations for policymakers, or mediating between conflicting parties. The programme is constantly updated to introduce fresh insights from the theory of conflict and innovative policy strategies as developed in the field by practitioners and academics alike.

An ideal subject for those who may have previously worked in conflict zones, or have an interest in how the theories of international relations cuts across the study of conflict, conflict resolution and security issues. Alongside your studies, you will have access to many additional external lectures, conferences and seminars, or via an internship with an organisation such as NATO. The teaching is delivered by academics and enhanced by practitioners - experts in their field combining theory with contemporary case studies bringing the latest global conflicts to the classroom.

The MA is offered in both a standard version (90 ECTS credits) and an extended version (120 ECTS credits) and in each case students may take the programme with or without a secondary specialisation. Those on the extended version will take more modules to gain extra credit.
