About

Overview

There are a growing number of new threats in international security, ranging from civil war, terrorism and transnational crime to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

The International Security programme offered by the University of Bristol aims to be empirically relevant by teaching students how to apply theoretical concepts to contemporary conflicts and current affairs.
