International Crisis Management with Dr Alastair Stark

This course provides students with an understanding of the policies and practices of crisis governance and the dynamics of post-crisis institutional reform, and emphasizes the participatory solutions which are now being proposed within this governance agenda. The course locates contemporary crises within an international development context, and, within this context, explores crisis causation, state-led crisis responses, and consequential reform efforts through governance, policy-analysis, and (participatory) democratic perspectives.
