About International Conflict and Security at University of Kent Brussels School of International Studies

The International Conflict and Security MA at the Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) is structured to introduce you to the key concepts and theories necessary to understand the features of contemporary international conflict studies and security issues.

At the same time, it gives the opportunity, through practical and case study-driven modules, to learn about conflict prevention and early warning, as well as the appropriate ways of managing conflicts peacefully through negotiation and mediation.

The programme also provides you with training specific to working in the field of conflict analysis, such as preparing reports on specific conflicts or security issues, drafting recommendations for policymakers, or mediating between conflicting parties. The programme is constantly updated to introduce fresh insights from the theory of conflict and innovative policy strategies as developed in the field by practitioners and academics alike.

An ideal subject for those who may have previously worked in conflict zones, or have an interest in how the theories of international relations cuts across the study of conflict, conflict resolution and security issues. Alongside your studies, you will have access to many additional external lectures, conferences and seminars, or via an internship with an organisation such as NATO. The teaching is delivered by academics and enhanced by practitioners - experts in their field combining theory with contemporary case studies bringing the latest global conflicts to the classroom.

What students think about University of Kent Brussels School of International Studies

    MA International Migration Student

    "I’m enrolled in the MA in International Migration and enjoying studying again in a different environment. I’d previously been working in Paris with Roma migrants, specifically working on a project of access to education for Roma children living in the makeshift camps around Paris. This project was a serious challenge having recently graduated (LLB in Law and European legal studies from Aberdeen in 2014), but it was a fantastic learning experience of hands-on work. Having developed new skills in project management and human rights issues around migration I thought about pursuing my studies further to gain a global understanding on migration issues. 

    I was a little anxious at the idea of hitting the books again, especially from a political science perspective. However, bringing this experience into this Masters has been great and so many of the students have different backgrounds, professionally and academically, which makes interesting discussions!

    Life in Brussels and at BSIS has been great so far. The diversity in this city is amazing, whether at school or outside of it. Being at the heart of the European Union, there’s always something going on. I could definitely get used to this!"

    Lucie Thomas, United Kingdom

    MA International Development Student

    "I am enrolled in the International Development Master. After finishing my Bachelor’s in Law and Political Science, I worked in an international legal NGO based in Spain and at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva as human rights consultant. I chose this Master program because it links my interest fields, human rights, development, and gender. The International Development Master is, without doubt, providing me new views and approaches to the many topics of international development. I am sure that it will strengthen your critical thinking and challenge you in many ways."

    Alazne Irigoien, Spain
