KurzbeschreibungThis course is a mixture between a seminar primarily for PhD and postdoc students and a colloquium involving invited speakers. It consists of presentations and subsequent discussions in the area of modeling complex socio-economic systems and crises. Students and other guests are welcome.
LernzielParticipants should learn to get an overview of the state of the art in the field, to present it in a well understandable way to an interdisciplinary scientific audience, to develop novel mathematical models for open problems, to analyze them with computers, and to defend their results in response to critical questions. In essence, participants should improve their scientific skills and learn to work scientifically on an internationally competitive level.

3 KP2SL.‑E. Cederman, Y. Pengl
KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to theories of state formation, nationalism and post-nationalist processes. The seminar focuses on how these macro-historical processes have been conceptualized and evaluated in both the qualitative and quantitative empirical literature.
LernzielParticipants will gain an overview of the most prominent theories of historical state formation highlighting geography, economic factors as well as interstate competition and warfare. Special emphasis is placed on how the onset of nationalist ideologies in the late 18th century transformed trajectories of state formation, death, and (dis)integration and what lessons can be learned beyond historical Europe. In addition to the classical theoretical and historical literature, we will discuss more recent attempts to study these questions using the quantitative toolkit of the modern social sciences. One learning goal is to familiarize students with novel data sources and methodological approaches to systematically study the macro-political processes of state formation and nation building.

Only for MAS Mediation in Peace Processes.
10 KP9GA. Wenger, L.‑E. Cederman
KurzbeschreibungStudents learn about the content of peace processes in this module. This module combines various approaches to developing options with an examination of contemporary cases and how various content issues are managed and interlinked. The module focuses on security, power-sharing, justice, socioeconomic and environmental arrangements.
LernzielMediators learn about the content of peace negotiations and peace agreements in this module. The module builds on the understanding that the goal of mediation is not to eliminate the issues that are tearing a society apart, but rather to find mechanisms to deal with differences in a non-violent manner. Mediators need a sufficient understanding of various thematic topics related to peace processes (e.g., security, power-sharing, justice, economics) in order to create linkages between them and the specific content issues therein. An adequate level of knowledge of core themes will also help mediators understand how to work with expert advisors to support a mediation process. This module both introduces relevant theory on ways of dealing with content issues and looks at how such issues were managed and interlinked in specific contemporary cases. This module also begins to address the teamwork dimension of mediation, which will be further elaborated on in the following modules.
