Overview

You will have the intellectual opportunity to bridge the themes of conflict, liberal styles of governance and aid policy. You will analyse the ways in which security, development and humanitarian agents adapt to instability. You will also examine the significance of globalisation for the emergence of internal conflict, and for the development of trans-border economics and the political dynamics they may support.

This Conflict, Development and Security programme from University of Leeds gives you the opportunity to study regionally differentiated responses to conflict in, for example, Africa and Afghanistan, and to discuss issues relating to humanitarian conditionality, containment and the role of international organisations and NGOs.
