This postgraduate certificate is for people whose work includes interventions in conflicts of all kinds, from civil wars to community disturbances. Your involvement may be in humanitarian or military agencies; in post-war support operations; or in resolving conflicts built around gender, class or ethnicity. You may have a professional and/or personal interest in development processes more generally, or simply recognise the significance of conflict in those processes.
This certificate explores the nature of development from an international perspective, presents a framework for looking at the origins of all kinds of conflict, and introduces the theory, policy and practice of intervention.
a wide-ranging exploration of the contexts in which development takes place
a critical review of development management as a discipline
an analysis of the complex ways in which conflict is generated
an appreciation of the range of skills that contribute to the making of good interventions in conflicts.
The certificate, like all our qualifications, encourages you to make connections between your learning and your own involvement in development. It is available as recognition of postgraduate study for those who, for whatever reason, do not want to continue to the diploma or MSc in Development Management.
We also offer a Postgraduate Certificate in Development Management (C48), Postgraduate Certificate in Human Rights and Development (C96), Postgraduate Diploma in Development Management (D37) and MSc in Development Management (F11).
You can find additional information about postgraduate development management studies on the Development Policy and Practice website.
