Cursusdoelen
The goal of this course is to teach students to analyse, through the lens of collective action theory, how intrastate armed conflicts happen, not as the inevitable outcome simply of emotions and motivations like fear, hate grievance, and not of conditions such as poverty or inequality, but rather as a product of human choice and coordinated collective action as exercised through framing and socio-political mobilisation within an opportunity structure.
Inhoud
The goal of this course module is to educate students on theories pertaining to how intrastate armed conflicts happen, not as the inevitable outcome simply of emotions and motivations like fear, hate, grievance, and also not just the result of conditions like poverty, inequality, or discrimination.  Rather, the phenomenon of intrastate armed conflict is theoretically analysed as a product of human choice and coordinated collective efforts that frame an image of the antagonistic Other, that mobilise human, material, technological, and ideological resources, all within a context of political opportunity structures that hinder or facilitate violent collective action. In short, the central argument that this course module aims to explore critically is, to quote Paul Richards: “armed conflict does not break out just because conditions happen to be ‘right,’ but because it is organised.” We unpack this statement into four main questions that serve to structure the course literature and weekly lecture sessions: (1) How and by whom is non-state violent collective action framed, organised, and mobilised? (2) How and why do individuals and groups engage in violent non-state collective action? (3) How is violent collective action expanded and sustained by non-state armed actors? (4) How do states respond to the violent collective action of non-state armed actors?

Voorbereiding bijeenkomsten
Students are expected to be prepared for each lecture session by having done each week's compulsory readings of the course literature prior to the weekly lecture and the seminars, and in so doing to be capable of participating actively in class and seminar discussions and debates.

Bijdrage aan groepswerk
At each weekly seminar session, a group of 3 to 5 students will give a group presentation of around 45 minutes on a relevant empirical case upon which to apply and demonstrate the theory in the week's literature. The purpose of group presentations is to give students a hands-on opportunity to learn how to apply and to use abstract ideas (i.e. theory) to analyse and make sense of phenomena of violent collective action in the real world.
