Course description

This course provides an in-depth study of peace operations and contains a unique peacekeeping simulation where students take on the role of UN peacekeepers, civilian staff, and non-governmental organisations to implement a peace agreement in a fictional country. During the course, students explore the historical evolution of peacekeeping, the different types of peacekeeping and peacekeeping actors as well as a range of contemporary problems such as transitional administrations and the use of force.
