About

The Conflict Resolution course offered by the University of Essex helps you understand the evolving field of conflict resolution, exploring the causes and effects of destructive conflict across the world, and scrutinising the theory and practice of how it can be managed peacefully.

Overview

We provide you with a framework for understanding conflict resolution in inter- and intra-state issues, focusing on topics including:

  • Mediation, negotiation, and collaborative problem solving
  • Using conflict data sets and drawing geographical maps
  • International development and human rights
  • International relations and security studies
  • Global and comparative politics

You have the option of studying an extracurricular module on non-violent movements, offered in collaboration with Slobdan Djinovic and Srdja Popovic of the Centre for Nonviolent Action and Strategies in Belgrade. This exciting module, previously offered at many US universities including Colorado College, Harvard University and New York University, has never been offered anywhere else in Europe.

Our dynamic, interdisciplinary approach combines traditional methods with contemporary theory and practices of non-violent movements. We encourage you to experience the practical as well as the theoretical application of these topics through examining real case studies of international conflict.
