About the Program
For students starting in 2019, both Danish and English language proficiency is required. Also, proficiency in a Nordic language (Norwegian, Icelandic, Swedish, or Finnish) will satisfy the Danish requirement.
International conflicts have changed fundamentally over the past two decades. To understand them and to manage them requires new skills, which is why we offer this new Master program.
The understanding and management of conflicts has traditionally been built on a fairly clear division of labor between specialists – between diplomats, soldiers, and aid experts. Conflicts were understood according to distinct phases, moving from peace to tension over war and stabilization to renewed peace. For each phase a particular set of specialists went to work.
Contemporary conflicts are multiple, complex, and volatile. They may last for decades. Signs of progress are often deceptive, and outsiders involved in managing the conflict can experience war, development, and peace enforcement all in one day – what the military calls a ‘three block war.’ To understand these conflicts, and to help organisations prepare for them, we need experts who are interdisciplinary and trained to understand the complexities of these environments.
This Master of Social Sciences in International Security and Law will train this kind of expert. Graduates will be experts who look to the international domain, who want to work with international issues, and who will want to help solve conflicts.
The program will provide you with the skills to integrate a conflict’s political, juridical, and ethical dimensions in a comprehensive assessment that identifies the drivers of the conflict and what international organizations can do about them.
