Course content

Our MSc in Conflict, Statebuilding and Development programme reflects the international debates about the nature of peace and conflict in the developing world and the approaches of the international community to support and create peaceful governance in areas of conflict.

This programme recognises an area of increasing importance in the academic and policy worlds, namely the links between peace, conflict and development. It makes a direct link between academic and practical policy approaches to analysing and recovering from conflicts, with an emphasis on developing countries, and provides an extensive menu of choices for masters level students.

Contemporary debates cover issues as broad as accountability and transparency, corruption, conflict, political settlement, human rights, participation, access to justice, democratisation and state building and will be of interest to individuals already working in development or recent graduates with some work/volunteer experience seeking careers in development or government, or in NGOs related to governance, state-building and peace.
