The course will review and analyse the international community’s evolving responses to the challenges of violent conflict. It begins with an assessment of the roots of many of today’s violent conflicts, followed by a discussion of attempts to settle and resolve conflicts with the help of internal and external parties. It will then examine opportunities for the prevention of violent conflict, experiences, shortcomings and challenges, in peacekeeping and peace support operations, and the international community’s engagement in post-conflict peacebuilding activities. The course will assess the UN’s recent efforts to evaluate and improve UN peace operations, and the feasibility and opportunities of implementing suggested reform proposals.
