Hours: 
48S

Since the end of the Cold War, fragile and conflict-affected states have been widely viewed in the international relations field as one of the preeminent challenges to international security and global governance. Western countries have typically responded to this challenge by launching interventions aimed at building new states that can be integrated into the global, liberal order. This course will dissect the liberal peacebuilding and statebuilding project and explore its broader impact and implications for the international system.
