Credit points: 15
This unit looks at human security from a humanitarian perspective. Students will explore the international humanitarian system, the protection of civilians in armed conflict, the Responsibility to Protect, civil-military relations in emergencies, issues facing refugees and displaced populations and international legal frameworks including the implications of the International Criminal Court for humanitarian practice. This unit will offer insights into international efforts to prevent genocide and crimes against humanity, whilst realising the challenges to humanitarian action in a complex world. This unit aims to challenge assumptions about aid and intervention, as well as provide discussion around the current trends that impact on humanitarian work. This subject will be taught with staff from the Humanitarian Advisory Group.
