MA/PGDip/PGCert in Global Security and Justice


Course Description

The MA course in Global Security and Justice at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). Security and Human Rights are fast-growing academic concerns within and allied to International Relations, reflecting the speed and complexity with which the world is changing. Whether it is the intensity of worldwide interconnectedness, the problem of transnational terrorism, the military conflicts in the Middle East, the impact of climate change or the Global Financial Crisis, the rising power of China and India, and the changing nature of international organisations such as the European Union, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the United Nations – international processes and dynamics are increasingly shaping and influencing our lives. How to explain the terrorist attacks to London, Madrid and New York? What does this tell us about the importance of security? Is globalisation a negative or positive development? Why are human rights so important and yet so widely ignored? This course will provide you with the conceptual and practical tools necessary to better understand the global world in which we live.
