Course content

If you are naturally curious about how specific regions and countries end up in conflict and how that conflict changes the political system in different countries globally, you may be interested in Global Conflict and Peace Processes.

This degree opens your options to go into politics, the Civil Service, EU, UN, OSCE, public sector, NGOs and many other organisations globally and other careers.

You understand how different conflicts have generated peace at internal level, intrastate level and regional level. From this you may build up a portfolio of understanding and experience to assist your knowledge of challenges in countries. This allows you to report on various issues and speak to specific groups of people like governments, advisors, diplomats and aid workers. You may become so knowledgeable that you are able to offer advice, opinion, outreach, security or economic development for specific regions or you may be able to promote peace upon what you experience at workshops, talks and briefings and at government agencies.

The programme allows you to engage with a range of conflicts and peace process in Northern Ireland, Lebanon and Cyprus to fully appreciate the types of conflicts in our recent past, their commonalities and methods of ensuring peace. This allows you to build up a knowledge and expertise to understand how future conflict may play out or be managed.
