Uitgebreide vaknaam Causes of conflict and proposals for peace
Leerdoelen 1. Students have knowledge of the various dimensions of modern-day conflicts, and understand the dynamic and complicated ways in which these elements interact.
2. Students are able to formulate a policy proposal that contributes to conflict resolution.
Omschrijving Many of the conflicts that characterize present-day international relations are multi-faceted in nature. Historical, political, economic, cultural, religious, linguistic and/or ethnic dimensions play a part, and so do international, national, regional and/or individual actors. Just think about the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation or the situation in the Middle East. In the course “causes of conflict and proposals for peace” the various dimensions of modern-day conflicts are studied; the dynamic and complicated ways in which these elements interact are analyzed; and proposals for conflict resolution are developed.
