Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Growing instability and conflict in the European Union’s (EU) neighborhood have increased the importance of the EU as an actor in conflict resolution and peacebuilding. Insecurity, failed states and conflict are also considered as important drivers of migration related challenges by the EU. This seminar will explore the EU’s role in conflict resolution in terms of institutions, instruments and approaches, which have evolved considerably over time. The course will introduce students to theoretical literatures on conflict resolution, peacebuilding and EU foreign policy to explore the EU’s role in conflict resolution. It also deals with critical perspectives on EU conflict resolution, including the so-called local turn. Building on these theoretical works, the course will explore the EU’s conflict resolution activities with respect to different country case studies, focusing on conflicts in the EU’s Southern and Eastern neighborhood as well as in Sub-Saharan Africa. The selected case studies will illustrate different EU-conflict resolution activities with respect to key instruments, approaches and thematical aspects. Among other things, it will deal with the EU’s normative approach to liberal peacebuilding, the power of European integration and its contractual relations, conflict mediation, civil and military crisis-management, engaging with actors from civil society, and gender and peacebuilding.
The course will take place in a hybrid format. The main course contents and materials will be provided through the moodle-platform, online lectures via Zoom, small group meetings and individual exercises. This will ensure an interactive format that relies on student participation.
• Phase one presents key theoretical and empirical works on the EU’s role in conflict resolution. In this phase, students will choose the topic for their papers.
• The second phase consists of plenary sessions to hold and discuss student presentations on their seminar papers. Students will be divided into groups in line with their selected topics and guided in developing the research design of their seminar paper. The sessions will allow for in-depth debt debate of individual topics, and student-only meetings in each group (these meetings can be held in person or via Zoom). Methods include individual work, peer feedback, presentations, and debate.
