This course provides students with the theoretical and practical tools necessary for third-party intervention in social conflicts, from both an African and global perspective. Drawing from conflict theory and case studies from Africa, students will learn how to identify, analyze and intervene in social conflicts at different levels, from personal to community to inter-state conflicts. The module also explores the challenges of intervention, including the impact of cultural context on intervention models, and how to navigate these challenges in practice. Through interactive dialogue and case studies, students will engage with different intervention frameworks and processes and compare them to intervention models from non-African cultures. By the end of the course, students will have the skills and knowledge necessary to make effective interventions in social conflicts, based on an understanding of the relevant cultural context and theoretical frameworks.
