Drawing upon readings and discussion, students will examine changing patterns of conflict and explore a range of institutions, techniques and strategies for responding to the challenge of disorder. 

Course Requirements: There will be several short, written assignments accounting for 40% of the grade. Students will also prepare a research paper (40%) analyzing a specific conflict management issue and what can be done to address it.
