Peace Studies deals with one of the most pressing issues of the contemporary world - the challenges that confront actors in conflict and post-conflict societies. The course will reflect on the complexity of peace and peacebuilding, combining theoretical approaches with opportunities for in-depth case study research.
The aim of this programme is to deconstruct the notion of peace and shed light on the issues of peacebuilding. The course encourages thinking beyond the mainstream and encourages students to make a contribution to the discipline.
The programme is built around a core of International Relations, but also draws on other disciplines such as History, Economics, Religious Studies and Law. The objective is to encourage our students to engage critically with both the theoretical and practical dimensions of contemporary conflicts and attempts to (re) build peace.
Students must take the core modules: Theories and Concepts in Peace Studies (30 credits) as well as Theory and Analysis of International Relations (30 credits), a postgraduate research methods module (15 credits), a case studies module (15 credits) and a further 30 credits worth of elective modules before progressing to a dissertation (60 credits).
Elective modules are expected to include:
International Organisation International Peacekeeping The EU as an International Actor Analysing Security Global Economic Development Conflicts in Global Justice Religion and Conflict
