Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module draws on theoretical discourses from the fields of international relations and strategic studies to explore both conceptions of security in its conventional sense as well as human security from the perspectives of law, international development and human rights. Example areas for discussion include: ethnic conflicts, United Nations enforcement action under Chapter VII UN Charter, humanitarian intervention, and post conflict management. The ‘war on terror’ will also be a subject for study. The module will further analyse the alternative ‘security agenda’ emanating from the South that is primarily concerned with food, health and poverty.
