IR 331 War, Peace and Security

This course is about three concepts that have been at the core of thinking about world politics, namely: `war', `peace' and `security'. By introducing a wide variety of intellectual traditions and contemporary ideas on these three core concepts to students, this course aims to provide a comprehensive basis for understanding the dynamics of world politics. The general objectives include the development of oral, written and research skills as the course requires students to become able to read, absorb and critically assess a large amount of complex (and at times contradictory) material. The subject-specific objectives of the course include the ability to discuss the causes and significance of war, alternative meanings and practices of peace, and contending conceptions and practices of security. Credit units: 3 ECTS Credit units: 5.
