Online - Summer 2023 - Summer Session A (6/5-7/7)

How do wars end?

What does it mean to have a peace agreement?

What does it mean to live peacefully in community with people who were previously your enemies?

In this summer course, we will explore the sources of violent conflict, conduct a case study on The Troubles in Northern Ireland, and critically explore ways actors settle conflicts and work toward peace. Students will learn the ins and outs of international peacebuilding and have an opportunity to analyze an ongoing international conflict.
