SECURITY IN A BORDERLESS WORLD
Credit points: 15
The intensification of global interaction is challenging the centrality of the state in international affairs. New forms of association are changing the way states and communities interact. Simultaneously security agendas have broadened. So called 'old wars' between states appear on the wane, replaced by 'new wars', with the 'war on terror' framing the state security agenda. However, these shifts may be more apparent than real and demand critical evaluation. We will examine the significance of these trends for security, understood both in its traditional military sense, and also in its less conventional sense as human or environmental security. Issues explored include terrorism, unregulated population flows, transnational crime, pandemics (notably HIV/AIDS), and the environment.
