Why study Peace and Conflict Studies?
Peace and Conflict Studies are assuming increasing importance both internationally and within nations as governments and non-government organisations struggle to find ways of resolving conflicts without recourse to violence. Peace and Conflict Studies examine a number of social and political issues including international conflict, peacekeeping, indigenous politics, ethics and justice and development politics. The objective of the this major is to provide you with an understanding of the causes of political conflict and the possibilities of finding peaceful solutions to them. This requires development of diagnostic tools for the analysis of social and political situations, a capacity to engage in and understand the evaluation of alternative courses of action and political analysis skills.
