Course Summary

Gain comprehensive knowledge in the field of politics and international development and equip yourself with the necessary skills to navigate this highly relevant research area.

You'll specialise in issues of conflict, peace and governance as you discover the challenges faced by states experiencing endemic political instability, violent civil conflict, gross human rights abuses and acute crises of governance.

This course adopts a unique interdisciplinary approach, making it a rewarding choice. Here, you’ll become part of a community dedicated to excellence and to making a difference on a local, national, and global scale.


You will focus on and critically assess the political development goals of sustainable peace, good governance and stable democracy.
