Conflict series - 2. Conflict analysis [PTP.2020.02E]
The conflict series is an open, self-paced course meant to provide an introduction to conflict studies and more advanced courses in conflictology.
The second of a series of three, this course delves into conflict analysis. The goal of this chapter is to give the learner a basic understanding of the importance of conflict analysis, and a set of tools and methods to start conducting their own.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Illustrate the importance of Conflict analysis;
- Describe the levels, spheres, causes of conflict and categories of actors involved in Conflict analysis.
Content and Structure
The course is composed of three sections:
- Section 1: The importance of conflict analysis
- Section 2: Levels and spheres of conflict analysis
- Section 3: Three steps of conflict analysis
The average work time is estimated at 2.5 hours.
The course is a self-guided, self-paced, web-based course that is on-going and can be accessed at any time. The material is presented in an interactive visual and text format with web-based reference resources. Multiple choice quizzes at the end of each lesson serve a dual function of assessing and evaluating the students’ understanding and retention and provide a further didactic function by reviewing the content.

Secondary audience: The course is geared towards anyone who wishes to garner a baggage of basic knowledge to then pursue more advanced courses in conflictology, notably UNITAR’s Master Degree in Conflict, Peace and Security.
