INTA 606: INTERNATIONAL CONFLICTS AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION

The course presents the various theoretical approaches to understanding conflicts; the structure of conflicts; and the different approaches to the analysis, prevention, management and resolution of conflicts. The course, while examining all forms of conflicts in the international system, places special emphases on Third World conflicts, particularly, intra-state conflicts. The role of civil society, groups, states, NGOs and international organisations in conflict management are explored. The course seeks to enable students to develop knowledge, skills, values and behavioural alternatives, which can be used for the management of conflicts.
