International Security and Terrorism

This programme exposes students to issues in international security as well as the specialised field of terrorism; the course investigates international security and terrorism since the ending of the cold war, whilst making clear how the issues raised are embedded within the broader field of international relations; the desire for security and safety has always been at the heart of the human condition; an understanding of the subject of security involves studying not only what makes us feel secure but also what we regard as threatening; in the current international environment, with the upsurge in international terrorism and the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, this course offers the opportunity for in-depth study and analysis for students and those with a professional interest in the subject.
