Course Syllabus

Abstract

Security in international relations is a subject which provides insights and understanding of order and stability both within and between states. Many students when they approach this course think that security is only concerned with states and their armed forces. A common misunderstanding is to equate security with defense. But the security agenda is much broader than this and now includes questions of force and military preparedness problems and policies to do with human and minority rights, migration, poverty, the environment and other societal issues. Following on from this wider agenda, security in international relations is increasingly concerned not only with the safety of states but also of the peoples within them. What students take away from this course is an understanding of security as a core value of human life and an awareness that security policies will vary depending upon how one answers the key questions: security in (or of) what; security from what; and security by what means.
