Foundations of Transnational Security
The concerns of national and international security have evolved considerably since the days of the Cold War. While states are still concerned with traditional threats such as military aggression from other states, emerging issues present different, yet no less compelling, challenges to security. These new challenges include terrorism, failed states, environmental catastrophes, and major public health crises. This course explores how security policy issues are addressed at the national and international levels. How prepared are agencies and organizations to meet newer security challenges? How prepared is the international community to handle environmental volatility? To what extent can technology be relied upon as a tool to address current security needs?
