Peace Studies

Course Description

Peace Studies are primarily dealing with causes of war and preconditions for peace. According to that, the course is divided into two parts. In the first part, students are familiarized with the history of the discipline, its origin, basic concepts, founders and internal controversies. They are also acquainted with the experience of war and different types of nonviolent struggle.

In the second part the main emphasis is on the conflict analysis which includes research on causes, history, actors and international context of contemporary conflicts in different parts of the world. The analysis is primarily related to internal and interstate conflicts, and deals with those conflicts whose nature, duration and outcomes wear more general theoretical and practical lessons.
