Overall Course Overview:
The methods and means used in armed conflicts have only been changing up to contemporary times, with the most sophisticated weapons being used. Since armed conflicts have caused untold human suffering, the study of armed conflicts is necessary… The knowledge gained is then directed principally at conflict and crisis prevention and resolution. The concepts learned can apply to the different armed conflicts that have plagued mankind over the years, thus permitting the participants to be able to appreciate their dynamics and make comprehensive proposals for their resolution… The course draws case studies from the Middle East as well as North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia where practical and policy related challenges of responding to conflict play out in specific contexts.
By the end of the course the learners should have garnered;
- In-depth knowledge of humanitarian conflict response, and development policy and practice.
- The professional and analytical skills to tackle political, ethical and practical tensions on the ground.
- The skills and knowledge to evaluate diverse perspectives and tools for conflict response and humanitarian action across different settings.
- An established professional network for continued knowledge-sharing and effective career development
