The Master of International Crisis Management aims to develop the required knowledge, skills and competencies for responding to complex emergencies and post-crisis management. Crises created by both human and natural causes are covered.
It has been designed to meet the needs of professionals for academic training in the currently neglected field of complex crisis management, including the core issues of human security, conflict and natural disasters.
The course introduces students to the principles of multi-disciplinary crisis management through case studies, and stresses the importance of a people-centred approach and a sound understanding of relevant issues such as human rights, vulnerable groups and sustainability. The specific role of technology and civilian and military responses are analysed by a team of world class scholars and experienced practitioners.
Detailed information on the course structure is available at Course Offerings.
