Module Outline

Ethnopolitical Conflict in Central and Eastern Europe' analyses the causes and consequences of ethnopolitical conflict and examines the means by which states seek to eliminate or manage conflict between ethnic groups. The course takes an inter-disciplinary approach and is structured around specific theories and concepts rather than case studies. However, students are expected to apply these theories and concepts to cases of conflict from the region, allowing them to develop a specialised understanding of interethnic relations and conflict resolution in Central and Eastern Europe and the FSU.
