Content

This unit is an enhanced Cloud (online) unit consisting of four modules. In the first module, we will study the role of geopolitics in humanitarian crises. In module two we will critically examine the strengths and limitations of humanitarian programming in relation to the international legal framework (International Humanitarian Law, International Refugee Law) and study a number of international and non-international armed conflicts and their consequences on civilian populations, including the issues of refugees, asylum seekers and Internally Displaced People. In the third module we will examine the civilian-military relations in conflict settings, the role of peacekeeping operations and finally in the fourth module we will learn about the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine.

Through the use of international and virtual case studies the unit will explore and critically examine the impact and consequences of humanitarian interventions across different geographies, social, political and cultural contexts.
