NEW Summer Course Offering in PDX!

This year, we are excited to announce our first International Studies course to be offered on the UO Portland Campus! The course, INTL 410/510 Humanitarian Aid in Conflict and Disaster (CRN 42253/42316) taught by Nick Macdonald, is being offered as a workshop both for credit to students and as a non-credit professional development workshop to non-students.

The workshop explores the theory and practice of UN intervention, humanitarian aid, peace building and development during or after violent conflict.  A case study approach will be used, spanning global conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Rwanda, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Pakistan, among others.

The topics to be covered will all revolve around the general principle of framing appropriate international responses to violent conflict, including:

  • Approaches to ending conflict
  • Use of military power for humanitarian reasons
  • Transitional administrations and international jurisdiction
  • Humanitarianism and human rights
  • Development assistance in war
  • International intervention
  • ‘Natural’ disasters
