Why do human beings engage in conflicts? Is it possible to end the seemingly endless cycle of violence? On this course you will critically investigate violent conflict including war, genocide, state violence, terrorism, as well as conflict resolution.
Drawing on philosophy, history and cultural politics, you will focus in particular on the war on terror, the Cold War, the two world wars, colonial warfare as well as genocide, torture and humanitarian intervention.
You will become an expert on the violent conflicts of the twentieth and twenty-first century, with the knowledge to contribute towards resolution of global conflicts.
Interdisciplinary study is key to this course and you will develop analytical skills from several academic disciplines including philosophy, politics and history – and the capacity to apply these to real-world problems.
You will be taught in small seminar groups, together with individual tutorials tailored to your learning needs, and will be supported by lectures from academic experts.
