Course content

Our new MA in Peace, Resilience and Social Justice is designed for those seeking an advanced understanding of the major contemporary trends shaping our world, such as environmental crisis, widening inequality and social division, resource scarcity, and violent conflict.

The programme critically examines how society is responding to these challenges, from contentious collective action and political resistance through to efforts to design and create more resilient, sustainable communities.

You will explore topics such as:
  • implications of climate change for peace and social justice
  • the role of resource limits and land-grabbing in the promotion of conflict
  • emergence of movements for indigenous rights and food sovereignty
  • crisis of democratic institutions and the rise of political populism
  • increase in contentious collective action – in both the real and virtual realms


The programme is delivered by the Division of Peace Studies and International Development, which maintains an international reputation as a centre for excellence in research, teaching, training and policy engagement. This means your teaching will not only be research-informed but also by staff that are well positioned to facilitate policy and practitioner community engagement.
