The Research School on Peace and Conflict invites applications for the PhD course The Dynamics of Civil Wars, Oslo, 30 May - 03 June 2016. The course is lectured by Professor Jeffrey T. Checkel (Simon Fraser University) and Professor Scott Gates (University of Oslo and PRIO).

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, exploring the cutting edge issues and challenges for the 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.
