About the course 'War and Peace building'
The focus of this course will be on the challenges posed by war and conflict. Rather than adopting a single disciplinary viewpoint students will be presented with various principles, insights and theories on war and peacebuilding and will be encouraged to approach the topics from a variety of disciplinary angles including international relations, international politics, philosophy, sociology, and history.
While threats to human security may come in many shapes and forms, war is still very much at the centre of contemporary, classical security studies. And, while the essence of war does not change, its manifestations and consequences do. Especially over the last decades the character of warfare has been in a period of change. Both the actors in, and the ways in which, wars are fought have changed beyond recognition.
This course will explore reasoning related to war and peace and helps students to understand the dynamics of war and peace and key elements of, and developments in, the body of knowledge in this domain. It will assess the nature of war and both the ways in which how war and peacebuilding have been studied changed, the changes in the way war is waged and peace is brokered and maintained. Finally, the course analyses and applies this body of knowledge to current cases of war and peacebuilding efforts.
