About

This innovative course provides you with a framework for detailed investigation of international security and terrorism.

Overview

Security and safety have always been at the heart of the human condition. An understanding of security involves studying not only what makes us feel secure, but also what we regard as threatening.

In the current international environment, with the upsurge in international terrorism and conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, this course offers the opportunity for in-depth study and analysis.

Taught by international security and terrorism experts, this course will introduce you to some of the major schools of thought within the discipline, including realism, liberalism and critical theory.

You will explore key issues in contemporary international security, including international intervention, conventional and nuclear deterrence, insurgency and counter-insurgency, peacemaking, and peacekeeping.

This course will facilitate the analysis of terrorism as a political strategy, and will explore its contemporary significance and relative success. It will also develop your understanding of counter-terrorist techniques and provide you with an in-depth study of security issues in particular regions of the world.The focus is on three key elements:
  • Theoretical underpinnings of international security and terrorism
  • Empirical problems of security and terrorism in the present age
  • Security and terrorism complexities through optional modules
