Security Studies

The aim of this module is to introduce students to key concepts and issues that constitute the agenda of Security Studies today. It stresses different approaches to understanding security; and the key ongoing transitions and drivers within the global system, which has led to a mix of so-called ‘old’ and ‘new’ security challenges to be addressed. Various historical and theoretical debates on what might be termed ‘classical’ or ‘old’ security concepts in the 21st century are examined, such as the role of Great Powers, the Security Dilemma, Arms Races; territorial disputes and geo-political competition. At the same time, it also enables students to understand current debates about the impact of globalization on security through studying issues such as trans-national terrorism; the spread of infectious diseases and ethnic conflicts. These may be loosely labelled the ‘new’ security agenda. It is anticipated that students will develop a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the complexities of the global system in the 21st century. Through prescribed academic writings, students are directed to the linkage between emerging global events and to think critically about how the global security agenda of the new millennium will be shaped by drivers of change such as globalisation and major power transitions.
The following outcomes are emphasized:
1.An ability to approach both theoretical debates and foreign policy outcomes with diverse analytical tools
2.The ability to collate and evaluate arguments from different sources and perspectives
3.The ability to formulate and articulate views coherently in written and oral forms
4.Critical thinking, analytical and reading skills
