Course summary

Overview

Our Conflict Resolution in Divided Societies MA offers a multidisciplinary, comparative study of national, ethnic and religious conflicts in deeply divided societies. It compares case studies from the Middle East and around the world, examining the theoretical literature on the causes and consequences of conflict, conflict regulation, and internationally led and grassroots peace processes.

Course detail

This course examines the causes, consequences and outcomes of national, ethnic and religious conflicts in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It will give you an understanding of theories of conflict and conflict regulation in deeply divided societies and how these apply to a wide range of cases, such as Northern Ireland, Iraq, Bosnia and Israel-Palestine. Topics covered include the dynamics of nationalism, sectarianism and identity, the role of civil society in peace processes, truth and reconciliation commissions, and the role of collective memory.

Teaching and assessment

The primary methods of assessment for this course are assessed essays, individual and group presentations, seminar participation, exercises, and/or exams. The dissertation module assessment will be based on a 100% dissertation assignment (up to 12,000 words). This course is primarily taught at the King’s College London Strand and Waterloo Campuses.
