Abstract

Security is the confidence of people that they will always have those things and opportunities that are important for their survival and well-being. But in the last twenty years this confidence has noticeably decreased, and there is not enough security for everyone. Covid-2019 only confirms this fact. It is obvious that the study of security in the context of increasing risks of various scales and the formation of trends towards the emergence of stalemate situations at all levels of security is now more important than ever. Exactly this fact constitutes the specific relevance of the proposed course. It will help students expand their horizons and form new knowledge about politically and physically significant threats and dangers; learn to identify what is a risk, what is a threat, what should be regarded as a security issue and what is not such. This will give them the opportunity to understand and explain what and why happened in the field of security, remove uncertainty, identify various areas of action to ensure security at all its levels, determining which of such actions should be prioritized and which are secondary.
