The Certificate in Conflict and Conflict Resolution is especially designed for visiting students at University College Cork (UCC) during the Autumn Semester. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the issues dominating the study of contemporary conflict and conflict resolution processes. It explores the pattern and trajectory of conflict and the processes of resolution at a range of levels from small-scale disputes to international crises. The programme includes an explicit focus on the Northern Ireland experience of conflict and marries this with consideration of other types and scale of ethnic and international political disputes.
