GOVT 84.26 Ethnic Conflict

Countries emerging from civil war face a unique set of challenges in creating the conditions for lasting peace and dealing with the trauma and devastation left by war. This course will be structured around several key themes related to post-conflict peacebuilding: the demobilization and reintegration of combatants, designing government institutions for conflict-prone settings, the role of transitional justice, and efforts to address the trauma of violence at the individual level. Throughout the course we will examine the role of international actors – the UN, Western Governments, the International Criminal Court – in post-conflict settings. The course will draw on a rich set of case material from Rwanda, Kenya, Liberia, Yugoslavia, Cambodia, and other relevant countries.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
