Peacekeeping and International Conflict Resolution

Recently updated! 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 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 2020 edition of this course covers the continued development of peacekeeping doctrine, theory, and practice in relation to the role of conflict analysis and resolution on the ground. It also offers new insights into the impact of information and communication technology on peacekeeping and conflict resolution — for example, the increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles on mission and e-peace simulations to help train peacekeepers.

COURSE AUTHOR: Professor Tom Woodhouse held the Adam Curle Chair in Conflict Resolution at the University of Bradford from 1999-2012.

Recemment mis a jour! Le maintien de la paix de l'ONU, initialement créé comme innovation expérimentale dans la résolution des conflits internationaux en 1956, reste la principale stratégie d'intervention pour gérer et résoudre les conflits dans la communauté internationale. L’un des éléments essentiels de la formation et de la préparation au déploiement actuelles des soldats de la paix est le développement d’une compréhension du conflit et de sa résolution.

Cette édition 2020 du cours présente une chronologie du maintien de la paix de l'ONU entre 2000, année de publication de la première édition, et le monde du maintien de la paix de l'ONU tel que nous le connaissons en 2020. Les mises à jour portent également sur le développement continu de la doctrine, de la théorie et de la pratique en matière de maintien de la paix en relation avec le rôle de l'analyse et de la résolution des conflits dans le maintien de la paix. L'objectif général de ce cours est de fournir une compréhension de base du domaine de la résolution des conflits et de son application - théorique et pratique - concernant les interventions de maintien de la paix dans les conflits internationaux contemporains.
