This course provides students with a working knowledge and experience of conflict resolution. We explore the history, methodology, theories, and practice in conflict resolution, as the field evolves in the post-9/11 strategic environment. Basic concepts in the literature are analyzed along with a comparison of strategic alternatives in the areas of relationship, power balance, communication, perception of value differences, and tactics. Case studies analyze conflicts in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Other modules address the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as well as religion in conflict resolution, the resolution of ecological conflicts as well as the relevance of crisis mapping to conflict analysis and uses of mobile technology in conflict environments.
