Other Cource: Conflict and conflict resolution in the Caucasus
The course analyses a selection of current conflict cases in the Caucasus on the basis of existing conflict theories and models for conflict resolution. The Caucasus region is characterized by territorial complexity and high ethnic diversity. In the Post-Soviet period the region has witnessed a number of violent ethnopolitic conflicts with large refugee flows, increasing Islamic fundamentalism, escalating terrorism and other destabilizing effects. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War the Caucasus region has obtained a new strategic significance. Regional great powers again compete for political influence in the region and for control over its strategically important energy resources. New external actors, notably USA and the EU, seek to obtain influence in the region.
The aim of the course is to familiarize students with major theoretical approaches to violent intrastate conflicts and to critically apply these approahes to selected conflicts in the Caucasus region.
The course is offered exclusively online, the students following the course come both from nearby in the Öresund region, but also from other countries worldwide. This creates an international group of students that are engaged in different joint activities during the course, and thereby promoting international contacts and strengthening the international perspective.
