POLS-307   Civil War, Ethnic Conflict & Terrorism

This course addresses how states use domestic policies to manage intrastate and transnational conflict in different forms. Topics include the causes and consequences of domestic conflict and the ways that conflict is perpetuated through the domestic institutions of states. Special attention is paid to the way that conflict within states can spillover into regional conflict and the ways that states differently respond to the interference of other states and international institutions in their domestic affairs.
