International Security

This course provides a thorough grounding in international security studies, focusing on developments since the end of the cold war. As the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington demonstrated with shocking clarity, international security remains a vital issue on the global agenda. The search for a stable and just international order has proven elusive, with war and armed conflict continuing in many parts of the world.
