Course content

International organisations, humanitarian agencies, and states, all intervene in the sovereign affairs of nation-states. But when might such intervention be justified, and how can it be made most effective?

Hosted in our Centre for International Intervention, our International Relations (International Intervention) MSc draws upon our staff's decades of experience in the diplomatic and humanitarian sectors. Crisis management and negotiation simulations enable you to apply the conceptual challenges presented by intervention in practical contexts.

With the option of a Professional Training placement, the International Intervention pathway will enable you to tackle the ethical, legal and political challenges posed by international intervention.

On our International Interventions pathway you will engage critical debates on the nature of international intervention. Discussion-seminar and simulation-based learning is animated by issues of state sovereignty, human rights, and the responsibility to protect people from atrocities.

You will study modules covering the latest research on international intervention and post-conflict processes, uniquely co-taught by experienced practitioners alongside the Centre for International Intervention’s academic experts.

Our International Intervention pathway also offers students the option of taking a Professional Training placement, allowing you to spend three months gaining vital industry-relevant experience.

Past students have gained experience working in diplomacy and foreign affairs, the military, charities and humanitarian NGOs, think tanks, and international organisations.
