About the course

This course is an advanced introduction to the history, core concepts, and scholarly debates related to the academic field of peace studies. You will study the concept of peace and its various dimensions as analysed by core peace thinkers and you will examine how peace is conceived of by multiple policy actors in practice. You will interrogate the different approaches to understanding peace, from a variety of political thinkers including Hobbes, Kant, Rawls, and Machiavelli. You will then explore the theories of peace espoused by prominent peace theorists such as Ledarach, Galtung and the Bouldings. Empirical topics covered on the course include the protection of civilians (POC), the role of the UN in promoting peace, just war theory, western approaches to peace activism, sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA), conflict related sexual violence (CRSV), and gender in peacemaking and peacekeeping. In this course, we will also focus on reviewing, analysing and assessing existing knowledge ensuring you develop critical analysis skills by interrogating key texts, concepts, and scholarly traditions. More information
