The Research School on Peace and Conflict invites applications for the course The Dynamics of Civil War, 12-15 May 2014. The course is lectured by Professor Scott Gates(PRIO and NTNU) and Professor Jeffrey Checkel (Simon Fraser University).

The course will provide an overview and critical assessment of contemporary research on civil conflict. It will be in equal measure backward looking – assessing the state of the art; what have we learned – and future oriented – what are the cutting edge issues and challenges for students of civil war.

The deadline for applications is 31 March. For further information on the course program and admission, please visit the research school course page.
