International Security

This course provides a thorough grounding in international security studies, focusing on developments since the end of the Cold War. International security problems often stem from complex political, economic, religious, environmental, social and cultural causes, and involve a broad range of non-state actors. The study of security in the contemporary international system thus poses a series of challenging intellectual questions and policy dilemmas, which this course will help you address in an informed and creative manner. This degree combines a study of the main theories and concepts in international security with empirical analysis of contemporary security issues such as terrorism, proliferation, failed states and security communities. The course will equip you with the skills to think critically and analytically about international security and to consider the complex causes of many contemporary security problems. You will develop the ability to analyse international security problems using a mix of theoretical and empirical tools.
