Queens University of Belfast School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy National and Ethnic Conflict Management 210PAI913 Second Semester 2007-2008 MODULE AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES MODULE DESCRIPTION Students will be provided with a detailed and critical analysis of the political and constitutional options in societies beset by ethnic conflict, with particular emphasis being given to mechanisms directed at the achievement of political accommodation. This course is the second of two core modules of the MA degree in Comparative Ethnic Conflict. Having analysed the nature of ethnic and national conflicts in the first semester module - Ethnicity and Ethnic Conflict - the focus of the course now switches to conflict resolution, or at least conflict management. MODULE AIMS: The specific aims of the module are the following: To examine and evaluate the principal responses to protracted ethnic and national conflicts. To provide students with basic understandings of National and Ethnic Conflict Management To introduce students to current debates on substantive topics covered on the module To give students the opportunity to develop communication skills through classroom discussion as well as chairing debates and presentation of briefing paper points to class. To further encourage intellectual skills through independent research, development of critical analysis and comparative reasoning. LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this module, students should be able to develop a sufficient understanding of different methods of conflict regulation in ethnically divided societies. The module examines the principal strategies and techniques of conflict regulation, including: the context and practicalities of negotiations; usefulness (and problems) of mediation and third-party interventions, territorial management of divisions, whether by means of federalism, re-scaling`, or partition; consociationalism as a means of conflict-management mediation and negotiation civil society and transitional justice post-conflict reconstruction and peace-building.


SKILLS: Upon completion of this module, students should be able to: Understand the dynamic and changing nature of conflict resolution and management. Understand a range of conceptual components associated with conflict management, including intervention, peace-building and reconstruction. To process, summarize and present facts/information including critical reflection, in oral and written format. Pursue intellectual questions in a rigorous and academic manner, employing analytical skills and critical thinking. MODULE ORGANISATION

Lecture This is two hour seminar every Tuesday 7:00-9:00PM held at UNIVERSITY information SQUARE 20.103 (please contact office if you need a door code) Consultation Hours Students, individually or in groups, are encouraged to raise issues concerning

the requirements and substantive content of the module with, where appropriate, a module lecturer, a module tutor or the module convenor. Such issues should be raised during published consultation hours or by arrangement. Consultation hours are listed on the notice board outside the School Office in 21 University Square. Staff within the School determine individually the material that they are willing to make available to students via Queen`s Online. It is School policy to include module outlines on Queen`s Online. It is NOT the School`s policy, however, that all lecture overheads and handouts are posted. This is the decision of individual module convenors and individual lecturers.

METHOD OF ASSESSMENT ATTENDANCE For Master`s level modules, students are generally expected to attend one two-hour seminar per week.


This module is worth 10 credits on the ECTS scale (equivalent to 20 Queen`s University CATS points, Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme). This is calculated by the University as the equivalent of 200 hours` academic study over the course of the semester (12 teaching` weeks plus the three week examination period). Students should therefore expect to spend on average at least 13 hours each week undertaking academic study associated with this module. ASSIGNMENTS Coursework: 50% An essay should be submitted by 12 noon on Monday April 28th at PISP main office. Students will be penalized 5% per day after 12pm. The essay should be 2500-3000 words in length. (including bibliography and references and 250 word abstract). When you submit the essay, be sure to collect a receipt for your coursework. Only one copy of assessed work needs to be submitted, but this will not be returned because of university regulations that involve external review. Students will however be able to collect a Report Sheet on Assessed Work upon request to the module convenor. The word length must be printed on the essay. Examination: 50% The examination component will be of two hours duration and involve the student answering two questions from six. The exam period is scheduled between Thurs 15 May - Sat 31 May 2008. ESSAY QUESTIONS 1. Consociationalism is dysfunctional and undemocratic because it empowers minorities with veto rights. Discuss with references to at least one country case studies. 2. Discuss a successful case of refugee or displaced population repatriation and its implications for conflict management 3. What legal, humanitarian and other factors should be taken into consideration when addressing colonization and settler issues in conflict-ridden societies? 4. Option of your choice on a topic CENTRAL to the theme of ethnic and national conflict management to be decided and approved by the module convenor during the week 25-29th of February. In our first session I would circulate an appointment sheet to make mutual arrangements for an individual meeting with each of you for the week 25-29 of February to discuss everyone`s essay plans. CONCEPTUAL EQUIVALENT MARKING SCALE For information on the University`s conceptual equivalent marking scheme that is used by the School at MA level, see School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy Postgraduate Handbook or


SCHOOL POLICY STATEMENTS: STUDENT HANDBOOK Students should ensure that they are fully familiar with School policies as set out in the Postgraduate Handbook. You should note in particular the following: SUBMISSION OF COURSEWORK A single copy of each assessed assignment must be submitted to the School Office (21 University Square) on or before the due date as set out in the module guide. When submitting an assessed assignment, you must complete and sign an Essay Cover Sheet` available from the School Office. All assignments are retained by the School for scrutiny by internal and external examiners. All essays should be submitted by 12 noon on Monday April 28th. Students will be penalized 5% per day after 12pm. ANONYMOUS MARKING From 2007-08 the School will be operating a system of anonymous marking for coursework as well as examinations. Students should therefore indicate only their student number on assignments and not their name. LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSEWORK QUB regulations state that late coursework is penalised at five percentage points per each working day (Mon-Fri), for up to 5 days after the due date, after which the coursework will receive an automatic 0. For example, an assignment that is three working days late will have 15 percentage points deducted. The School has implemented this policy. Students requiring extensions for medical or other reasons MUST fill out an extension form in the School Office. MEDICAL CERTIFICATES COVERING ABSENCE, LATE SUBMISSION OF COURSEWORK AND FAILURE TO SIT AN EXAMINATION Self-certification of illness is permitted for an absence of up to five working days. Selfcertification forms are available in the School Office. Fully completed self-certification forms or medical certificates must be submitted within THREE working days of returning to studies to the School Office in the School in which you are enrolled. Absences of longer than five working days OR failure to meet coursework assignment deadlines or absence from any examination or class test counting toward a module mark must be covered by a medical certificate signed by a registered medical practitioner. Medical certificates must be submitted to the relevant School Office within THREE working days of returning to studies. Medical certificates submitted after this period are not acceptable. During illness, and especially if you know you are going to miss an assignment deadline or an examination because of illness, you should inform the relevant School Office in advance by telephone or letter, either personally or, if too ill, via someone on your behalf. RE-SITS AND RESUBMISSIONS:


Where students fail a module at first attempt, QUB regulations allow them to re-sit exams and/or re-submit coursework. The maximum mark that may be awarded in such instances will be 50% and will be recorded as a PH (i.e. capped) mark. The following norms apply: On a module assessed by examination only, the student will have to re-sit the examination. On a module with mixed assessment, the student will have to re-submit the failed element. On a module assessed by two submitted essays, the student will have to submit a new essay (or new essays) on a different topic on any failed elements. The deadline for submission of coursework will, unless otherwise agreed, be the first day of the Supplementary (Resit) Examination Period, August 12, 2008 (by 12 noon). It is the student's responsibility to find out about re-sits and resubmissions. NON-ADHERENCE TO ASSESSMENT INSTRUCTIONS If you contravene instructions concerning the content or coverage of an assignment -- for example, that it may not be on the same topic as a previous piece of assessment -- the assignment will be awarded a mark of zero. This only applies to assignments (including examinations) within a module. PLAGIARISM The School takes a very severe line on students who plagiarise work. Students who attempt to pass off another`s work as their own will receive a mark of ZERO. In some cases, acts of plagiarism can result in the student failing the entire degree. Remember, plagiarism includes information from books, newspapers, journals AND the Internet. All suspected cases of plagiarism will be investigated in line with University procedures. For details of University Regulations on Academic Offences, see: This page also provides a link to guidance on how to identify and so avoid plagiarism ( Please also refer to the School`s General Study Guide for more information about referencing and plagiarism, as well as general advice on essay-writing:,38127,en.pdf GOOD PRACTICE IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET FOR ACADEMIC ASSIGNMENTS AND RESEARCH Students are increasingly turning to the internet as a resource for research and study. The School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy encourages selective, informed and accurate use of the many resources that the internet has to offer. Selective internet use means using the internet as one resource among others (the library, books, journals, lectures, and tutorial discussions, and so on) rather than writing assignments based solely on web-based sources. Selective internet use also means knowing which websites are reliable. In general, you are recommended to stick to official websites of institutions, organizations and respected media, rather than opinion or commentary sites. This is because, unlike journal articles or books, there are far fewer peer review processes to weed out false or dubious claims and arguments.



Internet usage should be informed by these considerations (i.e., wikipedia is RARELY an acceptable source for an academic essay). References to internet sources should be accurate. Familiarize yourself with academic conventions for citing internet sources (you must include the author, the title of the article, the date, the EXACT web address -- URL -- of the page you accessed, and also give the DATE on which you accessed the information, because websites are frequently updated).

Module convenors will recommend reliable websites for specific modules. See the Student Handbook (Referencing the Internet in your research) for further information. NOTE ON SPELLING, GRAMMAR, AND PRESENTATION Spelling, grammar, and presentation of assessed work is very important. It is one component of the assessment criteria used by the School on all assessed work, and so can affect the grade you are awarded. Use a dictionary and thesaurus to help you when writing essays. Always spell-check your assessed work before submission, but do not rely solely on your spell-checker: proofreading your work is essential. Good grammar (accurate usage of all aspects of punctuation, from full stops, commas, apostrophes, semi-colons, and colons, to good sentence structure) considerably improves the presentation of your argument. Some very common errors include the confusion of: its and it's: it's is a contraction of it is (and should generally not be used in academic work); its is a possessive pronoun (socialism, in its political rather than economic form, denotes...). - whose and who's: who's is a contraction of who is (again, you should generally avoid contractions in academic work); whose is a possessive (liberalism is a political philosophy whose characteristics include...) - your and you're: you're is (again!) a contraction of you are; your is a possessive (your right to free speech could be endangered by...) - they're, their, and there: they're is a contraction of they are; their is a possessive (their rights to self-determination...); there is an adverb (There are five good reasons why...; when they got there...) If in doubt, consult a dictionary or one of the many guides to essay writing available in the library. Try the following: Peck, John and Martin Coyle (1999): The Students Guide to Writing: Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (Basingstoke, Macmillan). Truss, Lynne (2005): Eats, Shoots and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation (Profile Books Ltd). LANGUAGE The attention of students is drawn to the Guidelines on the Use of Gender-Free Language Code issued by the Equal Opportunities Unit at Queen's. Students are encouraged to follow these guidelines when taking modules offered by the School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy. The Guidelines can be accessed via STUDENTS REGISTERED WITH DISABILITY SERVICES Students registered with disability services should contact each of their module convenors to discuss what arrangements can be made, in line with the recommendations from Disability Services, to facilitate their studies. 6

Where these are available, module convenors will arrange for lecture overheads to be provided (e.g., on Queen`s Online). These may be in addition to any handouts provided at lectures. Staff may, at their own discretion, provide copies of lecture notes to students. Students in need of extensions to the deadlines for submitting assignments must discuss the matter with the relevant module convenors in advance of the deadline published in the module outline. They must also complete in full the form requesting an extension. The form is available from the School Office. Students wishing to discuss any academic issues arising from their disabilities are encouraged to contact the School`s Disability and Welfare Officer, Dr. Sydney Elliot ([email protected]; ext. 3659). SCHOOL OF POLITICS, INTERNATIONAL STUDIES AND PHILOSOPHY: STUDENT RESOURCE CENTRE The Student Resource Centre is situated on the ground floor of 63 University Rd. The centre is for the exclusive use of PISP postgraduate taught students, and offers a quiet place for study, areas for collaborative work, and a suite of 15 pcs with a networked printer and photocopier. Please feel free to call into the Resource Centre at any time. PISP postgraduate students have 24 hour access ­ with a unique personal access code available from the Postgraduate Secretary, Mrs Mary Emmerson ([email protected]).

Managed Seminar Tuesday 8-9 pm The first part of the session includes the lecture while the second part is designed to facilitate student participation. Two students each week will write short presentations in advance introducing the topic (s). These are not graded therefore students should assume that the major goal is to facilitate fellow students` understanding of the course material. Note that since these papers will have been distributed to everyone in advance, the papers themselves will not be verbally presented at the seminar for which they are intended. The presentations should aim to stimulate informed discussion. These typed papers (hand-written papers are not acceptable) must be posted at QOL by Monday noon each week. These papers should be a maximum 4 typed pages double-space. The purpose of these briefing papers is to answer the given question by summarising the most important theoretical and practical issues and then indicating the author`s point of view.


All participants must have read these papers before the seminar. In addition assigned reading will take place from the list provided here. The seminar will be chaired by postgraduates The seminar should work on the principles of promoting intellectual debate and discussion of concept and comparative examples SEMINAR TOPICS AND READINGS: WEEK 1: Introduction and Administration (NL) Registration for presentations & appointment with module convenor. WEEK 2: Consociation and power-sharing (BME) Question for briefing papers: A. An advantage of a consociational approach is that it argues that it is necessary for communally divided societies to live with their ethnic cleavages rather than to wish them away`. Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of consociationalism as a practical tool for policy makers. B. Can a consociational settlement contribute to democratic stability and eventual depolarization? Learning outcomes: To understand the basic theory of consociational democracy and its application as a means of conflict management in ethnically divided societies. To critically reflect on the debates about the approach as a means of conflict resolution. Cases of Consociationalism: Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands; Lebanon; Malaysia (1955-69); Cyprus (1960-63); South Africa (Dec. 1993-1996); Northern Ireland (1974; 1998-?); Bosnia (1996-present).

WEEK 5: Post-Conflict Reconstruction II: The Iraq case (BME) Project-oriented learning Two Teams (to be agreed in advance) will work on the management of post-conflict reconstruction activities for Iraq. Objective is to convince the funder of the priority and efficacy of your project over that of the other team. Prizes for success. Project areas that you may bid for are: Infrastructure Natural Resources development Democracy building Security Health Education Refugees and IDPs You have to choose whether your team works on one or many project areas and whether you will work in the whole of Iraq or a particular province or region. It is the duty of the project manager to organise their team and task them ahead of the project presentation event. Project spend available is: USD 1 million 2008-09. The two teams will work to compile a project portfolio outlining their case, viability, costing and other relevant data on a maximum of 4 pages. Each team will offer a separate presentation of their case (not simply reading out the project portfolio) and there will be an opportunity to make the case for support on the evening of the presentation and to counter the case made by the other team. Learning outcomes To have basic understanding of the post-conflict reconstruction effort as both a theoretical and empirical project To critically assess current reconstruction efforts and priorities post-conflict.

Week 8: Partition and secession (NL) Questions for briefing papers: A. As a general solution to ethnic conflict Horowitz (1985: 592) concluded that partition ought not to be the policy of choice but of desperation. What problems might partition or secession cause and which may they solve? B. Very few groups have fought successful secessionist wars. So why do they try and which ones succeed. Learning outcomes: To understand the basic features of partition and secession ­ particularly in their historical context and evaluate their present-day function as a means to resolving ethno-national conflicts. Comparative assessment of defining features across the globe. Partitions: obvious cases: Ireland, India, Israel-Palestine, Cyprus, Czechoslovakia. Secessions: Sweden (Norway); Pakistan (Bangladesh), Ethiopia (Eritrea); The Soviet Union (virtually everybody); Yugoslavia (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and possibly Kosova in the future). Of course many other potential secessions could be listed - some of the best known would be Canada (Quebec), UK (Scotland), India (Kashmir), Iran, Iraq, Syrian , Turkey (Kurdistan).
