Introduction to International Conflicts
What is an international conflict? Will it be possible to discuss the origins of international conflicts in more general and abstract ways, or would it be the case that each conflicts are so distinct in nature that rule out theoretical abstraction? Those are the basic topics that I aim to cover in this course.

International conflicts encompass a wide terrain; here I will focus on what has come to be called the new kind of wars, those in which cultural symbols and identity play out in the development of violent conflicts, as opposed to the more traditional kind of warfare based on the acquisition of secular interests.
