The G-I provides the following unit of the Academic Program in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Sydney.
PACS 6922 Peaceful Conflict Transformation
This unit of study examines the dynamics of conflict employing scientific and mathematical formulae and principles. We consider the application of these principles: to micro-conflicts, within and between individuals; meso-conflicts, within societies; macro-conflicts, among states and nations; and mega-conflicts, among regions and civilizations. There will be an examination of ‘deep culture’ and ‘deep structure’, the underlying dynamics which predispose societies, states, nations and regions to particular forms of response to conflict issues.
