The course aims at introducing main concepts, themes and processes related to violence and armed conflicts. The composition of the course is divided into to main parts. The first half introduces general conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of thinking about peace, conflict and violence. In this respect, specific attention will be paid to issues like the micro-dynamics of violence, the role of gender in conflicts, the impact of natural resources and the reflection of the environment in contemplations about conflicts and war. The rest of the course tackles issues connected to armed conflicts. First the typology of political and armed conflicts is introduced, followed by the reflection on the origins of conflict and conflict prevention. Other topics include the role of non-violence in a political conflict, methods of conflict management and resolution, intractable conflicts and post-conflict reconstruction.

The course aims at introducing main concepts related to security and armed conflicts. The opening two lectures present important milestones in the development of the conceptualization of security, and outline basic theoretical perspectives on the role of conflict in politics and social relations. The following two lectures focus on important topics of security studies: the functioning of security systems and the issue of security threats. The rest of the course tackles conflict-related issues, mostly those connected to armed conflicts. First the typology of political and armed conflicts is introduced, followed by the reflection on the origins of conflict and conflict prevention. Other topics include the role of non-violence in a political conflict, methods of conflict management and resolution, intractable conflicts and post-conflict reconstruction. 

Upon graduating from the course, the students should be able to analyze a broad spectrum of security situations and armed conflicts. The course enhances their ability to generalize, compare and apply theoretical concepts on specific cases in security and conflict studies. In the final exam, students are expected to demonstrate argumentation skills on top of their knowledge of theories, concepts and relevant facts.

Final written exam. The exam takes the form of two extensive essays (out of three suggested topics, written in class) on the themes presented throughout the semester as well as contained in required readings. The tasks will be formulated in a form which will require the application of horizontal thinking across the concepts dealt with in the course and the ability to present original argumentation supported by relevant facts and information from the readings.
