FYS 131 Order and Justice in the World Community: The Resolution of National Disputes

This seminar takes a comparative approach to explore how different societies deal with internal conflicts resulting from religious, linguistic, racial, or other divisions. By identifying several prominent conflicts and analyzing ways to solve them-through power sharing (e.g. Belgium), federalism (e.g. Canada), minority recognition (e.g. Spain), etc.-we explore the goals of solutions, particularly in terms of justice and order.
