Generalizations about conflict and warfare claim that conflict is inevitable in human organizations. Yet there is a dearth of scholarly attempts to understand the nature, causes, course and the varied impacts of conflict, or of ways to bring about peace in the context of an internationally accepted legal regime.
Why study the programme
The changing nature of warfare from traditional to modern with the growing sophistication of weapons and their capacity to destroy calls for a thorough examination of warfare and its technologies through time. In the recent past, warfare has expanded its scope and the involvement of civilians has become more and more commonplace than hitherto. Alongside war the quest for peace has been with humans throughout their history. An understanding of conflict and its resolution it is hoped will form a basis for the creation of a culture of peace among peoples from various backgrounds, with the ultimate goal of attainment of global peace. Hence the Bachelor of Peace Studies and conflict Resolution by Mount Kenya University.
