International Security in a Changing World|
|Certificates: International Relations|
Although we no longer fear central threat of global nuclear war that infused the Cold War, we now face a myriad number of threats that appear to belie easy solutions. This course considers alternative ways to conceive of "international security" and how differences in these perspectives can affect our response to international threats. The course focuses on the relationship between force and international security, the prospects for peace and conflict in specific regions of the world such as Asia, Latin America, and Africa and some vexing issues such as terrorism, nuclear proliferation, nationalism and ethnic conflict, economics, environmental issues, and disease.
