Course Content

Global order has changed with the end of the Cold War. The old defining struggle between a capitalist West and a communist East has passed. Since then, some key policy discussions led by the North have linked national and international security to questions about potential future dangers of social and political disruptions resulting from environment degradation and economic underdevelopment in the South. Once again the world is divided into the North and the South, with the North making decisions to maintain global political and economic status quo –inadequate distribution of natural resources and wealth- and safeguarding security, and the South being managed without its consent. This course aims to provide the students with a comprehensive understanding of the North-South relations from the perspective of environment, development and security.
