Topic: Internal War, Civil Violence and State Repression

This course will examine and assess key explanations for the onset of
internal wars, insurgencies and secessionist movements. It will also
focus on state responses to those phenomena. A substantial body of
contemporary literature on these subjects will be covered in this
course. There is no particular regional focus to this course though
cases from South Asia, the Middle East and possibly Latin America
will be discussed.
