Hosted by the School of Law, this interdisciplinary programme is run in conjunction with the School of Politics and International Studies.
The programme offers an exciting opportunity to understand contemporary issues of security, conflict and justice from the perspectives of criminology, international relations, law, politics and sociology. It will allow you to select from a broad range of modules to critically evaluate some of the most pressing contemporary issues of security, conflict and justice from an interdisciplinary perspective, as well as offering the opportunity to specialise in topics that relate to your future career choice or academic interests.
You will gain in-depth understanding of how security, conflict and justice intersect, and how they are experienced at the local, national and transnational levels. You will gain skills and knowledge that inform a wide appreciation of security, conflict and justice, as well as receiving training in research methods drawn from across a range of disciplines.
MSc Security, Conflict and Justice enables you to learn from experts from within these three intersecting research fields, with all the facilities that a leading research-led university offers. The University of Leeds hosts diverse expertise in these fields that aims to develop new knowledge, analysis and policy to address the major challenges faced by contemporary societies across the globe. Drawing upon research strengths from across participating Schools – particularly the School of Law and the School of Politics and International Studies – this programme is built upon world-class research in areas such as criminal justice, changing patterns of conflict, (critical) security studies, global security challenges, internaltional criminal justice, policing, and responsibility to protect.
