Semester Frühjahrsemester 2023
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Dana Landau (dana.landau@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This course introduces students to three of the main avenues by which actors in pursuit of peace have attempted to end wars: through negotiation, mediation, and intervention. It covers the main theoretical and empirical debates on how wars can be brought to a peaceful end by international, regional, local, and non-governmental actors. Students are encouraged to critically engage with the scholarship, reflecting on the strengths and weaknesses of the different conceptual, methodological, and data collection efforts covered. Finally, students will relate the insights gained from both qualitative and quantitative studies of war and peace to a case of their choice (contemporary or historical) in a written case analysis submitted at the end of the semester
Lernziele Students are familiar with the main theoretical and empirical debates on war termination and peace processes, including core concepts relating to negotiation, mediation, peacekeeping, and humanitarian intervention. They have reflected on and discussed these in the context of a range of contemporary and historical cases, having applied different analytical tools and methodological lenses. They have critically reflected on the value of different data collection efforts in the field of peace and conflict studies and have considered the potential for scholarship to inform peace policy and practice. They have practically applied concepts from the literature on mediation and negotiation in a simulation setting.
