Peacebuilding and Mediation (MLitt – 1-year programme) or (MPhil 2-year programme) 2021 entry
The MLitt and MPhil in Peacebuilding and Mediation critically explore the relationship between formal and official peacebuilding and mediation initiatives and informal, unofficial, and community-based efforts. Students will: analyse bottom-up and top-down approaches to conflict mediation; conceptualise peace and its relationship to violence; analyse relationships between formal institutions of peacebuilding and parallel informal or unofficial processes; identify key actors involved in peacebuilding and mediation efforts; engage with bottom-up approaches to building peace; explore feminist and decolonial critiques of formal peace processes; and, critically engage with temporalities and spaces of peace and violence.
