Cursusdoelen

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the undergraduate course Conflict & Governance in Africa (MAN-CI35) for which cannot take place. We are very sorry about that and we hope and trust that you will be able to find a suitable alternative for this course.

  • Students who wanted to take a single undergraduate elective in Conflict Studies can also still choose: Actuele vraagstukken van oorlog en vrede (MAN-CI04A) (blok 3 / 6 EC) en Terrorisme: beeld en werkelijkheid (MAN-CI24) (blok 4 / 6 EC).
  • For students who necessarily wished to take and complete a CICAM minor in the second semester, there are several alternative options, such as Migration and Society (MAN-BKV65) (block 3, 6 EC); Regionale specialisaties en theorievorming (SOW-CAB1018) (blok 4, 6 EC); Theories of International Relations (MAN-BCU2013EN) (blok 3-4 / 6 EC); Internationale Organisaties (MAN-BCU309) (blok 3 / 6 EC).
    • For these and other courses, you should check whether you are eligible to participate in this course. You can do this by contacting the relevant lecturer.
  • Of course, it is also possible to spread your CICAM minor over several years.
  • International students with a Learning Agreement are advised to contact the International Mobility Office (imo@fm.ru.nl) and or the contact person of their own faculty. An alternative to the course Conflict & Governance in Africa (MAN-CI35) could be Migration and Society (MAN-BKV65) (Block 3, 6 EC) or one of your own choice.



At the end of the course:

  • You have knowledge of trends, theories and discussions on governance, development, (violent) conflic,t and the international community's interventions in Africa.

  • You are able to apply and use these theories and debates in discussions and writings about practices of governance and interventions by government institutions, non-state (violent) actors and the international community.

  • You can critically challenge common-sense assumptions and imaginaries about the continent, as portrayed in the media and reflect on your own prejudices.

  • You will be more familiar with one African country or region, and in the general debates introduced in the course you can skilfully relate to a particular dynamic in the country or region of your choice.
Inhoud
Africa is often portrayed as a continent of extremes and a victim to external meddling. ​By analysing the history and characteristics of governance in sub-Saharan Africa and by exploring how (violent) conflict plays a role in this, the course aims to move beyond stereotypes about the continent and explore African agency – socially, economically and politically. We will discuss the impact of slavery, colonialism and current interventions. We will also explore manifestations of statehood, ethnicity, gender, migration and the politics of resources and land. In doing so, the course aims to debate trends, conceptualisations and theories about governance and conflict in Africa, applying these to specific country cases in order to develop a more nuanced and highly contextual understanding of the continent
 
Niveau
This course is most appropriate for upper-level bachelor students. 
Voorkennis
This BS-course is intended for students who want to enhance their understanding of governance and conflict in sub-Saharan Africa. There are no prerequisites.
