Course content

Drawing on both academic and practitioner expertise, this master’s course is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills you'll need to begin a career in the field of conflict transformation and resolution, whether in the public sector or for non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

During the course you’ll examine the theoretical and conceptual issues in the fields of conflict and diplomacy, while gaining skills in analysis and the practice of conflict transformation and resolution techniques.

This Peace, Conflict and Diplomacy MA degree is taught by specialists in politics and international relations, many of whom are internationally recognised for the quality of their work.

This course is designed to provide you with an understanding of the theoretical and conceptual debates about the nature and origin of political conflict. It will equip you with knowledge of the specialist techniques employed by conflict resolution experts to transform and resolve conflicts. It will also act as a stepping stone to doctoral study in peace and conflict resolution, as well as related politics and international relations fields.

To provide this combination of academic and practical knowledge, the expertise of full-time academic staff will be supplemented by that of experienced conflict resolution practitioners from International Alert. This is a leading non-governmental organisation (NGO) whose staff have led and participated in conflict resolution exercises around the world.
