This certificate presents a framework for looking at the origins of all kinds of conflict – from civil wars to community disturbances – and explores the theory, policy and practice of intervention. You'll investigate the nature of development primarily from an international perspective. It is relevant to work in a wide range of contexts, including humanitarian or military agencies, post-war support operations, and conflict resolution around gender, class or ethnicity.

Key features of the course

  • Explores the complexity of ‘development ‘ and the contexts in which it takes place, locally and globally

  • Critically analyses development management

  • Analyses the complex ways in which conflict is generated and the diverse forms it takes

  • Develops the range of skills that contribute to conflict mitigation and the building of peace

  • Makes links between academic learning and professional practice, to the benefit of both
