About

The Global Conflict and Cooperation programme from University of Birmingham explores the theory and practice of how individuals, states, and political institutions manage conflict, and develop cooperation in international relations.

Overview

The MA in Global Conflict and Cooperation will appeal to those interested in combining academic approaches to conflict and cooperation with an understanding of the practice of international diplomacy and confidence-building, decision-making, and conflict mitigation and resolution in world politics.

The degree will enable you to:

  • explore a range of contemporary issues related to managing both conflict and cooperation in different parts of the world;
  • to examine in depth themes such as decision-making in international organisations, the role of individual foreign policy actors and changing structural contexts; and
  • to respond to the need to develop cooperative responses to address major global challenges, as well as to analyse a selection of inter-state and intrastate conflicts.

The Global Conflict and Cooperation programme from University of Birmingham will encourage you to explore a wide variety of themes from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

Career

Our MA students can pursue exciting and stimulating career opportunities with a range of organisations including government agencies, international organisations, the armed forces, NGOs, think-tanks, the media, the political world, and multinational corporations.
