Institution Logo Radboud University

The world has seen many violent conflicts within and between nation states. You will study (inter)national conflict, war and the physical and mental borders that come along with these.
This unique programme combines political geography with conflict management. You will study (inter)national conflicts, war and terrorism. We will focus on the backgrounds, contexts, sources and territorial aspects - imperialism, geopolitics, failing states, religions, (national) identities, discrimination, resources, borders - and the management and resolution - good governance, border management, humanitarian aid, development aid, diplomacy, peace operations. You will become familiar with the political and social construction of conflicts, territories and identities, as well as with the theory and practice of (inter)national conflict management. You will study these in theory but also in practice at the hot-spots of current conflicts.

As a graduate you qualify for jobs in journalism, research, civil, international relations, security sector, defence -, international organisations and non-governmental organisations as well as research.

The Master's in Conflicts, Territories and Identities is a specialisation of the Master's programme in Human Geography in collaboration with the Centre for International Conflict Analysis & Management (CICAM).
