CONF 392: Youth and Conflict

Instructor Information

Section Information

Explores aspects of youth and conflict in terms of context and dynamics at the local, regional, and global levels, as well as interactions with violence and peace. Youth is more than a distinct life phase or political category; this course challenges the boundaries of how we understand the considerations and constraints of the transition to adulthood. Objectives of the course are: to develop a better understanding of the generational and gendered dynamics of conflict and peace; to situate youth contextually, socially, culturally, economically, and politically; to explore impacts of gender, age, and context upon youth individually as well as within constituent groups; to incorporate youth into theoretical and practical maps of conflict analysis and resolution.
