Master of Science in Conflict and Development

 This one-year master programme focuses on the interaction between conflict and development in the Global South. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on concepts and analyses of a variety of disciplines including political science, anthropology, development studies and sociology.

Drawing on concrete cases from a range of geographical areas spanning the globe, courses allow students to develop in-depth theoretical and empirical knowledge of conflict, development, and their intersection.

In addition, students gain significant insight of relevant policies by governments and (inter)national organizations, including peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and development interventions.

The programme enables students to reflect critically on existing policies and approaches, but also prepares them to work in these domains.

It moreover encourages fieldwork to gain first-hand experience of researching and engaging with issues of conflict and development in the Global South.
