Course content

The Master’s in Conflict Resolution and Governance offers you education on the broad spectrum of conflict resolution theory, research and practice. The causes, characteristics, significance and consequences of conflicts are studied in relation to the dynamics of public governance. You will learn how to analyse conflicts, negotiate their resolution and link conflict research with its practice.

Would you like to know more about conflicts? Their shifts in character and significance? The possibilities for actions in real-life situations? And how to transform conflict into a resource for democratic governance?

The Conflict Resolution and Governance programme provides you with a foundation in theory and research that helps you analyse conflicts and conflict resolution efforts in relationship to the dynamics of public governance.

You are given the opportunity to develop a command of diverse resources needed to respond to analytical challenges presented by local, regional, and global conflicts and to situate contemporary events in a historical and comparative perspective.

The case-oriented approach of the programme helps you to develop skills and experience through the analysis of action in settings that are grounded in comparative and historical perspectives. 

Student profile

The programme is rigorous and intensive. You are expected to develop your capacity to work independently and in groups. Students come to the programme from a wide range of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. This diverse group is linked by a shared interest in developing their theoretical and research competence in close relationship with practices located at the boundary between conflict resolution and governance.

Competencies

You will develop the capacity to employ theoretical orientations to make sense of the range of influences (from global to local and instrumental to identity-based and institutional) that shape conflicts and their relationship to governance. Your capacity to draw on the most vexing features of contemporary conflicts to shape governance regimes from the fabric of crisis will be increased. You will gain skills in conflict analysis, in negotiation and conflict resolution, and in linking research with practice. 

Focus on research

All lecturers in the Master’s programme in Conflict Resolution and Governance are prominent researchers at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR). This connection with the AISSR provides students with access to various academic opportunities. The Master’s thesis is based on a topic that students develop individually within a common research project. Research and writing are conducted in a tutorial setting with a member of the programme faculty.

Degree certificate

Upon successful completion of Conflict Resolution and Governance, students receive a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Conflict Resolution and Governance.
