Program description

The Conflict Resolution and Governance programme provides students with a theoretical basis for analysing conflicts and the relationship of these conflicts to concerns for democratic governance.

The case-oriented approach helps students to develop skills and experience through the analysis of action in settings that are grounded in comparative and historical perspectives. The programme consists of two core modules plus an elective, followed by the design and development of an individual thesis based on empirical research. All modules emphasise case studies and use them to organise discussions, to develop students' skills in conflict analysis, negotiation and conflict resolution, and to link research with practice.
