GOVT 586 - Conflict Mgmt & Res:Arab-Israe
The course aims to attain a better understanding of the human phenomenon of international and intra-state conflicts and the conditions and means that enable their resolution or management. Drawing on a broad body of theoretical and empirical literature and the acumulated experience of addressing varied types of conflicts, especially since the end of the Cold War, the course offers a critical review of central concepts and approaches to the study of international and intra-state conflicts and the conditions determining the forms and processes of their management and/or resolution. Specifically, the course scrutinizes the existing approaches to conditions and processes of conflict resolution such as ripeness, learning, political legitimacy, official and unofficial diplomacy, the role of third-party mediation, implementation of agreements, and psychological obstacles to end conflicts. 
Much of the literature examined in the course employs Middle Eastern cases, especially the Arab-Israeli conflict, which has long been providing a wealth of lessons and insights to students of this field due to its long history and relatively accessible sources on wars and peace-making efforts.
