Governance, Identity and War

Through multiple disciplinary perspectives, this seminar explores three broad processes - governance, identity, and war – that shape much of contemporary peace and conflict studies.  How does governance work at the global level and, in particular, what role do institutions play?  Are international organizations (sometimes) a force for good, or (mostly) ineffectual 'talk shops'? We see an ever-growing amount of international human-rights lawmaking, yet horrific abuses of such rights continue. Why?

Contemporary conditions of critique: power, value(s), economy

This course presents a cross-disciplinary exploration of the present condition(s) of critique with respect to power, value(s) and economy. These interrelations are important also for disciplines that do not directly engage with the economy, including security studies and peace and conflict studies, because they are implicated in the formation of epistemic and normative orders characteristic for different eras.
