This programme explores the nature, dynamics and complexity of the links between peace, conflict, security, development, and democratisation in Africa, with a focus on cross-cutting thematic issues including armed conflict, poverty and underdevelopment, HIV/AIDS, resources and terrorism, among others. Delivered by staff with a high profile in academic and policy circles, the programme promotes an advanced understanding of the competing theories, concepts, interpretations, discourses and policies on history, politics, conflict and development in Africa, and their application to contemporary issues in a global, regional and local context (humanitarian, developmental, peace and security related) that underlie interventions in Africa, and their consequences.
You will also acquire subject-specific knowledge and understanding of methodologies of conflict analysis, management, resolution and peace-building in an African context.
