Conflict Resolution Theory (DHP D223)

Eileen Babbitt

International conflict resolution is a field of practice and of theoretical study. The primary goal of international conflict resolution is to use means other than violence to settle both inter-state and intra-state disputes, and to transform the relationships of disputing parties such that violence is not likely in the future. The theory is drawn from many disciplines, including law and many of the social sciences. Research focuses on understanding the dynamics of conflict in the international system as it manifests at the interpersonal, intergroup, and intergovernmental levels. It also involves analysis of what kinds of interventions are most effective at preventing, settling and resolving such conflicts. This course will provide an in-depth look at the theories of conflict and the theories of conflict resolution that address such conflicts. It will also explore some of the major theoretical debates in the field. (Tuesday and Thursday 11:05 a.m.-12:20 p.m.)
