POS 439 - Conflict Resolution


Credits: 3

This course will take a look at the enterprise of historical and contemporary conflict resolution. It will be examined both theoretically and empirically. While the world stage continues to change global conflicts are experiencing deep and rapid changes as well. The local is becoming global and the global local. As states and societies become more open to events outside their own borders, and images, belief systems, communications and ideas flow across societies divided by culture and different ways of life, it is not surprising that conflicts of interest persist. Historically there have been a variety of perspectives used to explain conflict, but more recently targeted efforts have been made to develop theoretical models for testing. This course will look at these models as well as specific case studies for analysis. This course is cross-listed as INT 439 .
