The turn of the new century has witnessed a continuing shift in the nature of conflict and security, with attention turning to issues such as threats and attacks by non-state actors, the responses of states to threats from terrorism and the spread of weapons of mass destruction and the idea of post-conflict rebuilding. The conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq show that it is necessary to study these conflicts from the perspectives of both law and politics to gain a complete picture of the issues and to be able to analyse the arguments and outcomes.
This innovative interdisciplinary programme will allow students to explore key legal and political issues in contemporary security as they relate to warfare, conflict and terrorism, to place conflict and security issues and events within a legal and political context and to understand the relationship between law and politics in international relations. It will also facilitate the analysis of the justifications, causes and consequences of war, conflict and terrorism, including the legal and political responses available to deal with international security threats.
2.1 (or international equivalent) in law, politics, international relations or a related subject; mature applicants without standard entry requirements but with substantial and relevant experience may be considered. English language requirements: IELTS 7.0 (with 7.0 in writing, 6.5 in reading and 6.0 in speaking and listening).
Recipient: University of Nottingham
