Universities and Conflict : The Role of Higher Education in Peacebuilding and Resistance, Hardback Book

Universities and Conflict : The Role of Higher Education in Peacebuilding and Resistance Hardback

Edited by Juliet (Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK) Millican

Part of the Routledge Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution series

Description

This book uses a series of case studies to examine the roles played by universities during situations of conflict, peacebuilding and resistance.

While a body of work dealing with the role of education in conflict does exist, this is almost entirely concerned with compulsory education and schooling.

This book, in contrast, highlights and promotes the importance of higher education, and universities in particular, to situations of conflict, peacebuilding and resistance.

Using case studies from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, this volume considers institutional responses, academic responses and student responses, illustrating these in chapters written by those who have had direct experience of these issues.

Looking at a university's tripartite functions (of research, teaching and service) in relation to the different phases or stages of conflict (pre conflict, violence, post conflict and peacebuilding), it draws together some of the key contributions a university might make to situations of instability, resistance and recovery.

The book is organised in five sections that deal with conceptual issues, institutional responses, academic-led or discipline-specific responses, teaching or curriculum-led responses and student involvement.

Aimed at those working in universities or concerned with conflict recovery and peacebuilding it highlights ways in which universities can be a valuable, if currently neglected, resource.

This book will be of much interest to students of peace studies, conflict resolution, education studies and IR in general.
