Course Details


This course introduces students to the study of international conflict resolution as viewed through the lens of civil wars (i.e., violent conflict by armed organizations within a recognized state). We address the obstacles to conflict resolution, why some civil wars last longer than others, and international attempts (e.g., UN, US, NATO, EU, etc) to build sustainable post-conflict peace. We nest international peacemaking within the context of global politics and use the main theoretical perspectives therein (e.g., realism, liberalism, constructivism, Marxism, among others).
