Overview

This course examines how contemporary armed conflicts are linked to natural resource distribution, state formation, social identities and places, borders and boundaries, and the creation of social, economic, and political hierarchies and networks over space.   Topics covered include natural resources and human-environment linkages; climate change and violent conflict; scale of conflicts (including natural resource commodities chains); borders and boundaries (including connections between coffee and conflict); rule of law (including land tenure); applying geography to peacebuilding (including case studies related to land tenure, water resources, land mines, and humanitarian assistance).
