DVM 4330 B00 - Special Research Topics : Peacebuilding Operations in Africa

NB: Cours offert en anglais seulement

Prof. Benjamin Zyla

Horaire du cours en ligne synchrone : Mardi 8h30 à 11h20

Peace operations are among the most important international mechanisms for contemporary conflict management. But their effectiveness often remains the subject of confusion and debate in both the policy and academic communities. Various international organisations conducting peace operations, including the UN, AU and EU, have come under increasing pressure to justify the effectiveness and impact of their peace operations. Although various initiatives are underway to improve the ability of these organisations to assess the performance of their missions, there remains a distinct lack of independent, external research-based information about the effectiveness of these peace operations.

Questions of the mission’s impact and effect on the political/security situation are fundamentally ones of relevance. A mission may conduct a range of activities – and indeed peacekeeping often focuses on measuring those activities – but the more important question is whether those activities are changing the behaviours of key actors, providing the hoped-for protections for civilians, and addressing deeper conflict drivers in the country. Understanding the intended effects of a mission’s work, and the role of other actors in driving change, and then examining the extent to which effects result from a mission’s activities addresses the question of relevance.

We will discuss these and other questions by examining a number of cases in Africa (broadly speaking), for example in (South) Sudan, the Sahel region, Somalia, Bukina, Chad, Mali, Niger).

Préalables : 54 crédits universitaires. Réservé aux étudiants et étudiantes inscrits au programme spécialisé en développement international et mondialisation.

SCS 4100 B00 - Selected Topics III: Miscarriages of Justice in Canada: Causes and Cases

NB: Cours offert en anglais seulement

Prof Kathryn Campbell

Horaire: Jeudi 14h30 à 17h20

The objective of this course is to allow students to gain a beginning understanding of the phenomenon of miscarriages of justice in Canada.  In recent years, media accounts have demonstrated that miscarriages of justice in the form of wrongful convictions and wrongful imprisonments occur far too frequently and that many known systemic factors contribute to theeir occurrence. Students will come to understand the problems in defining what constitutes a miscarriage of justice or a wrongful conviction by exploring the research, literature and case law that illustrate the causes of miscarriages of justice in Canada.  By situating the study of wrongful convictions within both legal and criminological frameworks, the course is aimed at uncovering these causative factors and exploring how they occur through the examination of a number of cases of wrongful conviction.

Préalables : 54 crédits universitaires.
