DAFF 3115A - Transparency and Accountability in Post-conflict Environments

Type d'enseignement : Elective

Semester : Spring 2017-2018

Number of hours : 24

Language of tuition : English


Notions of sociology and political sciences are required but most of the concepts will be explained or defined during the class.

Course Description

The course proposes a practitioner-oriented analysis of accountability and transparency's roles for the stability and resilience of post-conflict transitions and reconstructions. It will be designed in a way that students will be asked to contribute to the content of some of its sessions and will be associated in generating a possible model to conceptualize this phenomenon. Both practical experiences from the field and theoretic approaches will be used to structure the class. It is important to note that the material produced could be a very valuable source for future policy work.
