Course Summary

Course Summary

On this cutting-edge course, we specialise in giving our students an advanced and comprehensive understanding of the relationship between conflict, displacement and human insecurity. We will help you to develop the skills and understanding to prepare for employment in the fields of conflict management and resolution, humanitarian assistance and displacement, human rights and development initiatives. The key aspects of your learning will be the focus on conflict and displacement. We value a people-centred approach and an emphasis on human security which combines both human rights and human development. The course approaches development as an important security strategy and considers displacement a measure of human security. We will encourage you to adopt an independent critical approach to contemporary theories of conflict, human rights and human security.

What we're researching

You will be taught by internationally known scholars who have published extensively in the fields of conflict and peace studies, forced migration and refugee studies, gender studies, humanitarianism and development. Our academic team are engaged in innovative research on the key issues of today’s globalised world such as: human (in)security and contemporary conflicts; gender power systems of conflict and gendered processes of building peace; genocide narratives and psycho-social reconstruction.

Your Future Career

Our course is specifically aimed at giving you the skills, knowledge and understanding for a career in the fields of conflict management and resolution, humanitarian assistance and displacement, human rights and development initiatives. You will develop the critical thinking skills and flexibility for a role in an NGO or in a government department or agency, both in developing and developed countries. The course will also develop your skills for further academic research in conflict, displacement, development and human rights fields, as well as in associated areas of social and political theory.
