The 3 C’s of War: Causes, Consequences, Effects

What is war? How can peace be created? The course examines internal wars starting with a brief historic overview and then focuses in more detail on the wars at the end of the 20th century – beginning of the 21st century. The course will also focus on theory and practice of multinational peace operations. The course draws on readings from international relations and comparative politics. The approach is comparative across time and space. Case studies, depending on students' interests, may include: the wars of Former Yugoslavia (including Kosovo), Rwanda (genocide), Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, wars in Asia (Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan), wars in the Middle East. Some of these cases will be more closely analyzed than others.
