REGIONAL SEMINAR FOR EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING
"CONTEMPORARY CONFLICT AS AN 
INTERNATIONAL SECURITY THREAT"

Background 
The systematic study of conflict and conflict management is an almost completely neglected topic in the academic curric-ula in the target region despite the prevalence of conflict there. Similarly, very little research is carried out, which further diminishes the prospects of high-quality modules and courses. This means that not only the basics of an established sub-field in international relations remain uncovered in current curricula but even more so that new issues are not studied at all either. Addressing this significant shortcoming can only be achieved through a broad regional and interna-tional academic collaboration, not just simple knowledge transfer between senior and junior academics and between those from the region and outside, but rather a collaborative effort in which faculty and participants are partners in an intellectual endeavour to develop, apply, and disseminate a new research agenda, appropriate teaching formats, and relevant teaching and research skills based on an interdisci-plinary and theoretically and methodologically open and integrative approach


Main Activities
The project runs for three years, comprising an annual summer school, a winter and a spring contact session, and a range of inter-session activities. During each year, the project focuses on one particular topic as follows:
Year 1: Theories of Conflict and Conflict Resolution (focus on the main theories of conflict and of conflict resolution )
Year 2: An Analytical Framework for Conflict and Conflict Resolution: Structures, Actors, and Issues at the Local, State, Regional and Global Level (focus on integrating existing theoretical approaches and their application to specific empirical cases of conflict)
Year 3: Conflict and Conflict Management in the Former Soviet Union (focus on the application of knowledge and understanding gained to the region and integrating this with participants’ own experience)

The programme of online activities comprises two principal components.

Online modules: as part of our ReSET programme's ongoing learning activities, we offer two online modules on Theories of Ethnic Conflict and Conflict Resolution and on The Economics of Conflict and Peace.

THEORIES OF ETHNIC CONFLICT AND CONFLICT RESOLUTION
Offering an in-depth approach to the study of ethnic conflict, this online module complements our contact session activities. Further details can be found at the module homepage.

THE ECONOMICS OF CONFLICT AND PEACE
Offering an in-depth approach to the political economy of contemporay conflicts, this online module adds a distinct conceptual and empirical perspective to our contact session activities. Further details can be found at 
the module homepage.
