Full time September MSc Full-time: 1 year

About the course

Master's specialisation in Conflics, Territories and Identities

In recent years the world has seen many violent conflicts, ranging from the former Yugoslavia, Congo, Afghanistan to Iraq. Many of the violent conflicts are nowadays fought over issues as identity, territory or resources (e.g. diamonds and oil). War between states has become rare; most of the violent conflicts take place within the borders of a state. In addition, ‘terrorist' organisations with goals that exceed national agendas have claimed more attention than before. The international community - governments, non-governmental organisations and international organisations like the UN - has a significant interest in the management and resolution of violent conflicts.

Student Profile(s)

Charlotte van Raaij

The Master’s programme touches upon essential themes when dealing with conflict. It begins with a class on theories on how conflict occur, followed by courses on the philosophy of borders, attempts on peacebuilding and even a practical course where you go on an excursion to a (post)conflict area such as Israel and Palestine which was an amazing experience. The attached picture of me was made in Tel Aviv during the excursion to Israel and Palestine.

The teachers are very approachable and helpful, and their overal enthusiasm on their specific courses is very motivating.

In my opinion the curricula touches upon all the relevant issues and themes related to international conflict. You learn about more theoretical and philosophical theories and ways of thinking and you are simultaneously taught about practical matters such as transitional justice, the work of NGOs in the field (and ethical issues they get to deal with) and attempts such as peacebuilding and statebuilding. Following this Master’s programme gives you overall knowledge of conflict and all that comes with it, which is very valuable in a later career in this area.
