The course deals with the role of the environment and natural resources in conflicts and peace building. Among the key themes are environmental impacts of conflicts and warfare, and post-conflict environmental analysis. Moreover, the course describes how natural resources can function both as a source of conflicts and as tools in peace building and in post-conflict economic recovery and reconciliation. The theoretical underpinnings of environmental security are also discussed.

The course deals with the role of the gender in war, peace and peacebuilding, including conflict mediation.  Gender is used as an analytical tool which opens up a domain of larger theoretical issues which include, for example, the construction of femininities and masculinities, cultural trauma, post-conflict exclusion and memory work, political agency, subaltern and the nexus of speech/silence. The course discusses also the ways in which gender can be studied (methods and methodology) and demonstrates the usability of a variety of research material (e.g. policy documents, documentary films, interviews).

This module examines intersectional approaches to human mobility in peace and conflict research. Violent conflicts, ethnic and religious discrimination and human rights abuses produce forced displacement, understood as both refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). The perspectives of states, international organizations, civil society organizations as well as migrants themselves in responding to these crisis situations are considered. During the course these perspectives are approached through three types of intersections. These include a) intersections between theoretical approaches to the question of forced migration, b) those between theory and practice, and c) those between different empirical situations of forced migration.

What is the role of traditional peace mediation in the context of a changing international framework and what can be achieved by international mediation? Notably, changes have taken place in the more recent unfolding of conflicts, and this presents peace mediation and the efforts of negotiation with considerable challenges. Simultaneously the UN has improved its own organization, the EU has included mediation into its agenda and many small and middle sized countries, such as Norway, have turned mediation into an integral part of their foreign policy. Overall, a rather flexible and multifaceted diplomacy is on its way of supplanting the traditional state-centric diplomacy. It may further be noted that a number of countries lean on cooperation with NGOs or even outsource their contribution to mediation to the NGOs. It appears that the models applied in the sphere of mediation vary and one of the aims of the course is to ponder on the diversity of available options and actors. Mediation and dialogue are not approached only from third party’s perspective but instead examined as part of the whole peace process and critically examined the role of mediator and international actors.

The courses combines lectures, workshops, literature, practitioner’s visits as well as role playing rehearsal.

The 2015 edition of Visual Peace Research is a RESEARCH SEMINAR in light of new trends in, and new challenges to, photojournalism. The seminar is based on the assumption that traditional photojournalism is in crisis: its aesthetics are exhausted, the extent to which it reaches audiences is limited, and it is facing strong competition from citizen photographers and social media. The course explores such issues as: photojournalism in the digital age; forms and practices of citizen photography, in particular in wars and conflicts; social media and photojournalism; alternative forms of approaching war and security photographically (e.g. aftermath photography); participatory photographic projects; subject positions and responsiveness of audiences; ethical issues in connection with representations of human suffering; peace photography.

A collaborative approach to knowledge production, to be specified at the beginning of the course, will be used.

In this module we study different approaches to peace through the examples of specific individuals who have earned recognition for their actions in the cause of peace. Here the term ‘peacebuilder’ is interpreted in a broad sense. The lectures will introduce a selection of individuals, the conflict situations they faced, and the means of their coping with theconflict. These personalities will include some acclaimed peacebuilders and historical figures like Mohandas Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and Willy Brandt. Their individual positions on non-violence, or their acceptance of qualified violence under certain circumstances, will be discussed. Attention will also be paid to the peacebuilders’ own explanations of their motivations, actions and objectives, and the – potentially different – international perception of their work in hindsight.

Furthermore, each student will present a research paper on a chosen individual and thereby contribute one approach to the complex topic of peacebuilding. Interested students are encouraged to start thinking about the choice of ‘their’ peacebuilder (different from the individuals presented by the teacher) already before the first session. The sources used for the research paper should ideally include original writings and speeches by the selected peacebuilder.

This course examines what is understood by nationalism and national identity, and how identity is intertwined with security. The notion of ontological security is introduced to explain how conflicts between and within nation-states are struggles over identities. Furthermore, the role of collective memory and past politics are analyzed as the sites of power struggle. The controversial nature of multiculturalism is also discussed in classes.
