Security, violence and conflict are now central to international politics and development policy discourse. Understanding the modern world demands a full appreciation of conflict and violence.
This course explores coverage of ‘traditional’ security issues such as war and conflict, in addition to ‘non-traditional’ issues such as economic security, environmental security, health and migration.
You will receive an advanced introduction to the main approaches in the study of security. These approaches cover realism, securitization theory, feminist approaches, critical theory and poststructuralism.
