Working with professors and people in the field of conflict resolution, mitigation, and prevention provides both a theoretical framework and a historical context in which to situate the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda and the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
You will start your trip in Rwanda and then make your way to Uganda. In both countries, you will spend one week in classroom discussions, readings, and lectures addressing the history, contemporary politics, and role of the state in each conflict. The following week, students visit carefully selected sites to study the issues firsthand.
The following syllabi are representative of this program. Because courses develop and change over time to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, actual course content will vary from term to term.
