CONF 393 - K01: Violence Causes...Alternatives

In this course, we will examine the causes, sources, and origins of group violence with particular attention to group violence and ethnic conflict. We will explore the perspectives and theories that explain why violence becomes a primary, or at least a viable, form of resolving conflict and/or organizing human relations. In the second half of the course, we will devote ourselves to examining the relationship between violence and conditions for peace.
