SOCY 3394 Social Conflict (Spring: 3 )
The end of the Cold War has not put an end to either war or violent conflicts within society. In fact, more than one-third of the world's countries have been directly affected by serious societal warfare since 1990. Not only do problems of large scale, violent conflicts remain central in the modern world, but the probability of nuclear proliferation and the possible use of chemical weapons make such conflicts even scarier. The purpose of this course is to increase your understanding of the conditions under which social conflicts tend to become violent and on how they can be resolved non-violently.
