Ever since the Vietnam War, media globalisation has made conflict a part of everyone’s life in the modern world. This is where war reporters play the crucial role of mediators, to bring us stories covering the various dimensions of war from some of the most vulnerable places on Earth. This volume will explore the visual culture of conflict, specifically the war on terror that is grounded in the conceptual claim that images are central to contemporary geopolitics.

These include an analysis of why wars begin, how wars are waged, what happens after war has ceased, and the various alternatives to war. Other sections explore civil war and revolution, the arms trade, economic and political systems, and post-conflict reconstruction and nation building. Policymakers as well as academics and students of political science, economics, public policy and sociology will find this volume to be an engaging and enlightening read. This module aims to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the challenges facing post-war societies focusing on transformation, security and governance. The module will first examine and compare how civil war endings, specifically victories versus negotiated settlement, shape the evolution of post-war regimes.

Students will receive written feedback on their summative assessment no later than 20 working days; and the module tutor will hold a specific session to discuss feedback, which students can also opt to attend.

On 29 July, Germany requested British neutrality in the event of a European war, which Britain refused.
