The conflict series is an open, self-paced course meant to provide an introduction to conflict studies and more advanced courses in conflictology.

The first of a series of three, this short course explores the meaning of conflict. Drawing upon different definitions and tools, its goal is to create a basic baggage of knowledge, which can then be expanded in further courses in conflict analysis and resolution.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Provide a definition of the meaning of conflict;
  • Describe the sources, complexity, role and pyramid of actors in conflict.

 

The course is composed of six sections:
  • Section 1: Kilmann conflict character type test
  • Section 2: What is the meaning of conflict?
  • Section 3: What are the sources of conflict?
  • Section 4: The complexity of conflict
  • Section 5: Evolution of conflict
  • Section 6: Actors in conflict

The average work time is estimated at 4 hours. 

The course is a self-guided, self-paced, web-based course that is on-going and can be accessed at any time. The material is presented in an interactive visual and text format with web-based reference resources. Multiple choice quizzes at the end of each lesson serve a dual function of assessing and evaluating the students’ understanding and retention and provide a further didactic function by reviewing the content.

At the successful completion of the course participants will be awarded with a badge. 
Primary audience: The course is designed for anyone who has an interest and curiosity in conflict studies.

Secondary audience: The course is geared towards anyone who wishes to garner a baggage of basic knowledge to then pursue more advanced courses in conflictology, notably UNITAR’s Master degree in Conflict, Peace and Security.
