Conflict in the Pacific Islands
Critically examines some of the theoretical discourses and applied approaches in conflict studies and their application to Pacific Island societies. The course will look at some of the historical, psychological, socio-economic, political and cultural forces which cause, drive and trigger conflict and how these have transformed Pacific Island communities and states. It will also look at global, regional, national and local indigenous responses and intervention mechanisms as part of peacebuilding approaches.
