About

Our MSc degree explores the theory and practice of how individuals, states, and political institutions manage conflict, and develop cooperation in international relations. The Global Cooperation and Security programme at University of Birmingham considers how political communities with different values, cultures, histories, and security conceptions can build trust in a global system.

Overview

We live in an age where there is an urgent need for cooperative responses to address major global security challenges, as well as to transform intractable inter-state and intrastate conflicts.  

This  Global Cooperation and Security programme at University of Birmingham responds to that need by providing you with an advanced interdisciplinary training in the theory and practice of global cooperation and conflict resolution.

We offer research-led teaching at the intersection of International Relations, Political Psychology and Security Studies, combined with a 5-day training programme in 'Trust, Diplomacy and Conflict Transformation'.

Careers

Our MSc 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. Our excellent academic training is complemented by networking opportunities and voluntary work placements either at the Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security (ICCS) itself, or at one of our partner organisations.
