Course Summary

Conflict Transformation and Social Justice examines the theories and practices of conflict transformation from within local and global perspectives, including case studies of Northern Ireland, the Balkans, the Middle East, South Asia and South America, as well as evaluating how religion impacts upon peace-building. Students will learn how interventions and policies dedicated to conflict transformation have failed or succeeded.

The programme will position the importance of security, transitional justice and the role of restorative justice in democracy building. Understanding how border conflicts and social injustice encourage conflict and violence will also be studied. Other important features of peace-building that include negotiation and dialogue, the problem of dealing with victims issues and perpetrators of injustice will also form part of the overall learning around the research methods and ethics required for the restoration of social justice.

Perfect for students who are interested in a comparative international perspective on conflict transformation and social justice, drawing on the experience of conflict in Northern Ireland.
