Inhalt Since the end of the Cold War, international intergovernmental organizations have been at the forefront of international conflict management. These international organizations have established their own peacebuilding units and mandate peacemaking and peacekeeping missions. Second to the United Nations (UN), most of the activities are initiated by regional organizations in the Global South, for example, the African Union (AU) in Africa, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Southeast Asia, and Mercosur in South America.

This seminar examines international organizations’ activities in conflict management to analyze why and how they form, develop, and engage in peace and security issues. Furthermore, the seminar’s focus on organizations in the Global South sheds light to dimensions of international community-building beyond the dominant Europe-based explanations.

The seminar first discusses the main International Relations theories regarding the formation of international organizations. It then examines the different conflict management tools and the varying ways by which these international organizations employ them. Lastly, the seminar provides an overview of international organizations’ interaction with the UN in the maintenance of peace and security.
Lernziele At the end of the course, students are knowledgeable of the different International Relations theories regarding the formation of international organizations. They are also familiar with international conflict management tools and the respective debates in peace and conflict studies. The overall aim is that students are able to apply these in understanding and analyzing the conflict management activities of regional organizations in the Global South, as well as these organizations’ relationships with the United Nations.
