About the course

The aim of the course is to present anthropological perspectives on the study of war and armed conflicts. The course focuses on socio-cultural processes that characterise different stages of armed conflicts. The course covers local phenomena, such as gender, children in war, and refugees, in relation to global phenomena such as media coverage, international aid policies and arms trade.
