About the course

The question of security now dominates contemporary international politics. Issues such as the 'War on Terror', pre-emptive self-defence and humanitarian intervention constitute seminal international concerns that have implications for all states and all peoples.

You will examine the theories of international security and those key security issues that have dominated security discourse in the post-Cold War era.
