Dimensions of Security

JSIS 542
  • Quarters: Spring

This course explores how regional and global security agendas are evolving in response to issues that are increasingly complex and based on new levels of great power rivalry. Students study the changing relationship between traditional and new security paradigms within a broader political, military, economic and demographic framework. Topics of analysis will encompass resource insecurity (including food, water and energy), irregular immigration, cyber anarchy, hybrid warfare, the rise of authoritarian states, proxy wars, and the wider threat from environmental degradation and climate change.
