Overview

Description

This graduate seminar introduces an emerging research program within International Relations on territorial conflict. While scholars have recognized that territory has been one of the most frequent issues over which states go to war, territorial conflicts have only recently become the subject of systematic study.

Readings in the course draw upon political geography and history as well as qualitative and quantitative approaches to political science.
