About the course:
How can we understand armed conflict and peace? This course aims to give an introduction to the central puzzles and research areas of peace and conflict research. Key concepts linked to explaining the causes, dynamics, and resolution of conflict are presented and discussed. You also learn how to conduct a conflict analysis, including how to independently collect and analyse data on armed conflicts and how to weave theory and empirics in a research paper.
