MA Conflict, Development and Security

University of Leeds

Masters Degree , Uncategorised

Course Description

The MA Conflict, Development and Security addresses the merger of development and security issues, and its implications for analysing the reconstruction of war-affected societies. This programme bridges the themes of conflict, aid policy and liberal styles of governance. You will analyse the ways in which security, developmental and humanitarian agents adapt to instability. You will also examine the significance of globalisation for the emergence of internal conflict, and the development of trans-border economies and the political dynamics they support. The course gives you the opportunity to study the regionally differentiated responses to conflict in, for example, Africa and the Balkans, and to discuss issues relating to humanitarian conditionality, containment, and the role of IGOS and NGOs. In analysing the relationship between aid and politics in 'new' wars, this inter-disciplinary programme draws upon the department's rich diversity of approach and experience.
