This unique course covers the theory and history of international conflict and of intra- and inter-state disputes in the contemporary international system. It draws on subjects such as international relations, politics, economics, sociology and history. The course will enable you to examine and analyse the issues and dynamics that shape and influence conflict in the modern world, as well as explore the tools to manage and resolve it.

Key features

You will be taught by highly acclaimed academics and experts, including presentations by leading figures from politics, the media and international organisations.
-Our year-long (30-credit) modules provide increased contact time with academic staff. You will also be fully supported in preparing your dissertation, in which you will research an area of interest in depth.
-Lively discussion is encouraged, with visiting speakers, leading academics and figures from human rights and international organisations contributing to the debate.

What will you study?

You will look at the theory and history behind international conflict at all levels of interaction, from the interpersonal to the international. You will also examine how conflict manifests itself in the contemporary international system, and the techniques available to manage and resolve violent disputes.

You will apply your skills in a piece of original research of 12,000-15,000 words.
