  • Overview

    This course provides an introduction to international conflict and cooperation, focusing on the various ways in which inter-state disputes are forcefully or peacefully resolved. The course is divided into three overarching sections: the legal and normative frameworks through which states resolve their disputes, the relative success of different conflict resolution strategies from arbitration and mediation to more coercive measures, and finally the role of global institutions in managing international disputes. The course will draw to a close by exploring how these global institutions could be reformed to better manage international disputes.
