Contemporary Conflict Analysis: Actors, Issues & Technologies of 21st Century Warfare

Owing to the ever-changing nature of warfare, the field of conflict studies requires an informed approach towards answering the question of why various actors resort to violent conflict. This online summer school, closely linked with Uglobe's Intimacies of Remote Warfare programme and the Centre for Conflict Studies (CCS) of Utrecht University, equips scholars and professional practitioners alike with cutting-edge knowledge and transferable skills for mapping, analysing and responding to warfare in the 21st century: who is fighting and how do they relate to one another (actors); what are they fighting over and why (issues and interests); and how exactly are they fighting (technologies and practices).
