Technology and the International System

GOVT 312
Fall 2010 not offered
Certificates: International Relations

This course will focus on the impact of technological advances on the historical evolution of the international system. Specifically, we will explore how technological changes and advances have affected the economic incentives and opportunities as well as the security concerns and power capabilities of states over time. Major revolutions in warfighting, communications/information, and transportation technology have not only changed the trade-offs states make between military and trading strategies, but have changed how power is actually defined in the international system. There will be a special emphasis on the relationship between a state's size and the nature of its foreign economic and security policies.
