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 digital format. The main course contents and materials will be provided through the moodle-platform, including video recordings, online lectures, small group meetings and individual exercises.
