Political Science 295A: Ethno-National Conflicts
(Julianna Fuzesi) 2 credits, prerequisite: none. Enrollment cap: 20.
This course aims to familiarize with the devices used for the regulation of national and ethnic conflicts. It seeks to provide students with an understanding of the tools available to states and policy makers to manage conflict. The course will include a close examination of cases of divided societies such as India, South Africa, Lebanon and Yugoslavia. Once students have a grasp on the concept of ethnicity, the course will divide conflict management into four main themes: 1) territorial devices, 2) repressive and accommodation incorporation, 3) violence, and 4) solutions within democracies. Instruction and discussion will occur in the classroom as well as out in London, at various museums, communities, and sites.
