During the course, students will attain skills in conflict analysis and a more profound understanding of its theoretical approaches. Students will also become familiar with the central models, institutions and active parties of peace mediation, in addition to attaining the practical and social skills required for discussing their strengths and weaknesses. Through the examination of specific cases, students will be trained to consider how different solutions impact development and sustainable peace.
This course examines conflict analysis, theories related to the connection between (under)development and conflicts, as well as thoughts on and models of peaceful conflict resolution
