Course Description

The course familiarises the student with the field of the sociology of peace processes, which is one of the growth areas within sociology and related areas internationally. It establishes the nature of sociology’s distinctive contribution to the study of peace processes and the conceptual and empirical focus of this approach. The course places particular emphasis on three areas, religion, gender and civil society. It addresses three international peace processes in particular, Northern Ireland, South Africa and Sri Lanka, and critically assesses the contribution in each of religion, civil society and gender. The course will lay the necessary conceptual, methodological and substantive foundations for students to carry out their own independent researches in the sociology of peace processes within the dissertation associated with the MSc in the Sociology of Peace Processes, and in other contexts, including future PhD research.
