This course provides an overview of the study of the causes and trajectories of interstate war, civil war, rebellion, and political violence. We will explore the debates about and the most accepted explanations for the outbreak and protraction of international conflict. Then we will pivot to the topic of civil war and international proxy warfare, which now constitute the most common forms war takes.
