Peacekeeping and International Conflict Resolution

The overall aim of this course is to provide the student with a basic understanding of the field of Conflict Resolution and its application, both theoretically and practically, to peacekeeping intervention in contemporary international conflicts. The course explores the emergence and development of the academic discipline of Conflict Resolution and its relation to the evolution of peacekeeping. The contributions of Conflict Resolution theory and practise to peacekeeping are identified early on and considered throughout the course. The nature of conflict and the dynamics of contemporary conflict are defined, along with the key concepts and techniques for resolving conflict. The course explores the significant areas that will improve responses to today’s complex emergencies, including conflict analysis and mapping, early warning and conflict prevention, contingency and complementarity approaches, interagency coordination, post-conflict peacebuilding and reconciliation, cultural understanding, and gender awareness.

The course focuses predominantly at the international level of conflict and conflict intervention, however, many of the principles and techniques that underlie this level are applicable to other levels of conflict (i.e., interpersonal, intergroup, and intercommunal).

COURSE AUTHOR: Professor Tom Woodhouse held the Adam Curle Chair in Conflict Resolution at the University of Bradford from 1999-2012. He founded the Centre for Conflict Resolution at the University of Bradford in 1990. He has been attached to the Department of Peace Studies since its formation in 1974, when he was appointed as a Research Assistant to the founding Professor, Adam Curle.

Nuevo El objetivo final de este curso es ofrecer al estudiante información básica sobre el campo de solución de conflictos y su aplicación, tanto en teoría así como en forma práctica, para la intervención para el mantenimiento de la paz en los conflictos internacionales contemporáneos. El curso explora el surgimiento y el desarrollo de la disciplina académica de solución de conflictos y su relación con la evolución del mantenimiento de la paz. Las contribuciones de la teoría de solución de conflictos y la práctica del mantenimiento de la paz se identifican en forma temprana y se tienen en cuenta durante todo el curso. Se define la naturaleza del conflicto y la dinámica de los conflictos contemporáneos junto con los conceptos claves y las técnicas para solucionar conflictos. El curso explora las áreas significativas que mejorarán las respuestas a las emergencias complejas actuales, incluyendo el análisis y la hoja de ruta de los conflictos, alertas tempranas y prevención de conflictos, enfoques de contingencia y complementarios, coordinación entre agencias, establecimiento de la paz posterior al conflicto y reconciliación, comprensión cultural y conciencia de género.

El curso se enfoca primordialmente en el nivel internacional del conflicto y la intervención en el conflicto; no obstante, muchos de los principios y técnicas subyacentes a este nivel son aplicables a otros niveles del conflicto (como por ejemplo, interpersonal, intergrupal e intercomunitario).

La presente revisión editada provee un contexto histórico y un análisis contemporáneo sobre la respuesta flexible de ONU y el servicio que presta a la comunidad global en constante evolución. Estos puntos son particularmente relevantes al iniciarse una nueva etapa en la historia de la Organización, que celebró en 2015 su 70º aniversario, con la culminación de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio y el lanzamiento de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible. Diez lecciones.
