War, Peace and Justice
On this module you will study the complex relationship between war, peace and justice in the twenty-first century. You will explore key debates on the causes of contemporary conflict, evolutions in norms and understandings of the legitimate use of force, the politics of peace-building, and various means of interpreting these developments. Covering key concepts like ‘just war theory’ and ‘liberal peace’, this detailed conceptual overview will be grounded within a series of case study contexts that ensure that students experience a rigorous practical and theoretical overview of the current state of Peace and Conflict Studies.
The module will be updated for 2016/17 under a new module tutor and the topics are subject to change.
