Peace and Conflict Resolution
In order to resolve conflicts we must understand them. In order to attain and sustain peace we must understand some of the peace research findings that social scientists and practitioners have discovered over the years. This course will provide a cross disciplinary examination of international violence and peace issues, including concepts, methods, frameworks and findings that policy makers, activists and peace researchers use as they deal with conflict and violence and strive to move toward peace. Although primarily international in focus, we will learn from those who focus on personal nonviolence, ethical issues of violence and war, conflict resolution and mediation.
