GS 3200 (4 credits)

International Peace and Security

This course will explore the challenges of international security, peace and conflict. In helping students make sense of headlines from around the world, this course will first present major theories of conflict and peace, then examine some of the most important issues currently on the global agenda: terrorism, nuclear weapons, ethnic and religious conflict, the promises and problems of collective security, economic interdependence, global information flows and the rising political power of networked individuals in the digital age. The course will challenge students to discover the complex relationships between these issues, question their own assumptions about peace and security, and reflect on how their own identities and futures will be affected by the forces explored in the course.
