This course aims to deepen the students' knowledge regarding central issues within peace and development. Special attention is given to the ability to connect different theoretial points of departure to analysis of actual situations, that in turn can affect the conditions for structural change, social conflicts and global security. The first module focuses on some of the central issues of the field; global development and security. The second module highlights the methodological conditions for peace and development research, from a multilevel perspective. At the end of the course, students write their Bachelor's thesis (15 credits).


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
