Course aim

To provide a comprehensive understanding of global, national and local level socio-ecological conflicts and their resolution. To equip students with theoretical aspects of conflict resolution as well as with practical skills and techniques for non-adversarial conflict resolution. The course also aims to provide students with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in designing and implementing complex community consultation projects.

Course content

Students will learn about special characteristics of socio-ecological conflicts and about reframing conflict for their successful resolution. Different conflict resolution approaches such as Adversarial Dispute Resolution and Alternate Dispute Resolution will be explored. Students will get an opportunity to apply these theories through exciting hands-on activities such as organised role-play. The course also allows students to gain a theoretical understanding as well as in-depth practical knowledge of designing and implementing effective community consultation projects.
