Conflict Studies

Conflict Studies explores conflicts and the issues surrounding them in an atmosphere that encourages open discussion and debate around competing explanations and interpretations of key conflicts, both historical and contemporary. The multi-disciplinary approach, rooted in history and politics, allows students to focus on specific conflicts and debates, including the importance of military history in understanding the past. Students engage in debates surrounding such conflicts as the 1st and 2nd World War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, the Middle East conflict, Northern Ireland, post-Cold War conflict, and the post-9/11 security framework. Students gain an informed understanding of the complex and volatile nature of contemporary international security and the historical roots of current crises. Taught by internationally recognised specialists in conflict studies, international relations and military history.
