Peace Research

This course is to examine the rationale, assumptions, and key issues of Peace Research, focusing on the possible contributions which peace research can bring to the understanding and processes of social change.  The course examines the distinctions between the assumptions of peace research and those of the more traditional approaches to the study of war, peace and security, analyzing traditional and alternative understandings of power, power relations and cooperative processes in the international, political, economic and social environments. Within this context, the course examines a number of case studies.
