This course is designed as a seminar on the problems of international security during the post-cold war period. Most generally, international security is concerned with how human collectivities – primarily but not exclusively states – relate to each other in terms of threats and vulnerabilities. The seminar examines major concepts and frameworks related to security at the domestic, regional and global levels, and considers substantive issues such as conflict management and intervention, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and international terrorism. Prerequisite: POSC 269 or permission of instructor.
