Peace and Conflict Studies
Conflict, in its many forms, has been a permanent feature of human society. While not all conflict is destructive, the violent conduct of conflict has caused innumerable deaths and indescribable pain and suffering. It is this kind of deadly conflict that Peace and Conflict Studies addresses. It tries to understand its causes, to explain its effects and to describe its dynamics in order to prepare actors - be they state governments, international organisations or individuals - to better manage conflict peacefully, or to prevent it in the first place. This degree examines the major theories and leading practices of conflict and conflict resolution in international affairs, supplementing theory with detailed case studies. Topics include risk analysis, negotiation, mediation, conference diplomacy, twin-track diplomacy, third-party intervention, peace-keeping, peace-making, and coercive diplomacy. This programme offers the opportunity to study at the University of Marburg, Germany and obtain a Joint degree. You spend the first year in Canterbury and the second year in Marburg where courses will be taught in English. You also undertake a mandatory internship that is linked to the MA dissertation. All lectures and seminars on postgraduate modules are informed by the latest research and scholarship, and are delivered by full-time academic staff who have internationally recognised expertise in their field.
