This course examines contemporary issues surrounding international and interfaith conflicts in the modern world (e.g. the  War in Ukraine and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict) and analyses various legal and alternative approaches to resolving them. Students will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding of these complex issues and develop skills in analysis, intercultural communication, and mediation.

Today, our polyethnic world faces a plethora of "hot" international and interfaith conflicts with numerous casualties. Government bodies in many countries struggle to address such challenges and threats, while international organizations' actions to end international conflicts are often ineffective. These conflicts arise in both established democracies and emerging countries. International and interfaith confrontations are among some of the world’s most violent and prolonged conflicts. We will focus on two specific cases: the conflict in Ukraine, where the organisers and guest lecturers can share their first-hand experiences, making it particularly relevant, and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, which is currently a very relevant issue.
