Peacekeeping, Statebuilding and International Intervention

This module looks at the way international intervention has changed in recent years. It draws on a number of different areas – humanitarian intervention, peacekeeping, development and state-building. It draws these areas together by exploring what they have in common and how there has been a shift in the way that international intervention deals with these issues. In particular, the international community has moved from direct involvement towards a form of governance that operates from a distance by encouraging local ownership, capacity building and resilience.
