Syllabus

This unit will provide an understanding of the complex ethical, legal, social and political features of military and humanitarian interventions and the challenges of post-conflict and post-disaster reconstruction. The unit will explore academic and policy debates surrounding such interventions, examine the theoretical frameworks and conceptual tools developed to assess and analyse the issues and events that provoke intervention. The unit will focus on a series of recent case studies to better unpack the practical and policy challenges presented by humanitarian interventions and reconstruction missions, including the international laws, treaties and norms that guide and shape such missions, as well as the current practices of government and non-government agencies in the field.
