PEAC 023. First Year Seminar: Global Responses to Violence

This first-year seminar will examine responses to political violence on an international scale. The first half of the semester will be devoted to examining the role of religious institutions, representing a wide range of faith-based communities, in exacerbating or ameliorating violence. The second half of the semester will cover examining the role of global secular institutions, such as the United Nations, in addressing political violence. Students will be exposed to two subfields of peace and conflict studies - the study of religion and violence, as well as the study of international organizations in conflict and post-conflict settings. This first year seminar does not fulfill the Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies requirement for PCS majors and minors.
