You will learn how to analyse conflicts, negotiate their resolution and link conflict research with its practice.
Would you like to know more about conflicts? Their shifts in character and significance? The possibilities for actions in real-life situations? And how to transform conflict into a resource for democratic governance?
The Conflict Resolution and Governance from University of Amsterdam provides you with a foundation in theory and research that helps you analyse conflicts and conflict resolution efforts in relationship to the dynamics of public governance.
You are given the opportunity to develop a command of diverse resources needed to respond to analytical challenges presented by local, regional, and global conflicts and to situate contemporary events in a historical and comparative perspective.
The case-oriented approach of the programme helps you to develop skills and experience through the analysis of action in settings that are grounded in comparative and historical perspectives.
The programme is rigorous and intensive. You are expected to develop your capacity to work independently and in groups. Students come to the programme from a wide range of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. This diverse group is linked by a shared interest in developing their theoretical and research competence in close relationship with practices located at the boundary between conflict resolution and governance.
