International conflict transformation

CFU: 6

Year: II

Instructor: Giovanni Scotto

The course presents concepts and theories related to the peaceful transformation of international violent conflicts, illustrating them with examples driven from global peace initiatives, European and Italian experiences in the field. Particular attention will be devoted to exploring practical tools for conflict analysis, integrative negotiation and the design of peacebuilding processes.

Classes will be held combining different forms of teaching and learning: lectures, group discussions on assigned readings, students presentations, experiential training and in class exercises, and videos shown in order to present actual case studies and encourage reflection and discussion.
