New Masters Module for 2016
We are introducing a new MA module "Armed Conflict and Civil War" that explores the nature, causes and impact of civil war and intrastate armed conflict in the 21st century.
The module will support learning around questions such as: how are civil wars and intrastate armed conflict defined, understood and measured? How are factors such as ethnicity, weak state capacity, poverty and social inequalities, political exclusion, natural resources, environmental change, globalization, and food price rises relevant to the onset of instability and conflict?
"The staff are friendly and approachable and will offer help to those who need it. Lecturers are both interested and hugely knowledgeable in their subject, and will always make time for you if you need any help."
