UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course offers a study of the efforts to rebuild political arrangements and institutions in periods after violent conflict both at a national and local level. The course explores the efforts to construct or reconstruct state institutions and to build democratic regimes, and the inherently political and conflictive nature of these processes. The course utilizes case studies from the past two decades such as DRC, Afghanistan, and Guatemala, in order to critically analyze processes of international intervention and political change. The course has three main fields of analysis: assumptions, strategies, and roles of international actors; their interactions with local elites; and the characteristics of national and local political contexts in which these actors operate. Students review policy documents, literature on political development, policy analysis, documentaries, and the growing body of literature critically assessing efforts by international and local actors of social engineering after war. The course requires that students have prior basic knowledge of theoretically informed conflict analysis as a prerequisite.
