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.
