Course Content

This course examines the range of security threats that the international community faces at the beginning of the new millennium and discusses, both at the level of discourse and the level of practice, how the international community is responding to the persistence of such threats as nuclear proliferation and terrorism and the emergence of new ones such as chemical and biological warfare, pandemics and mass migration. Special emphasis will be placed on comparing and contrasting traditional security paradigm with newly emerging ones, as well as their complex interaction.
