Course Description: What are the most pressing security issues in the first half of the 21st century? What are the main active conflicts and how do they impact the global security agenda? What are the main drivers of these conflicts? Are these conflicts new? What is the prevailing understanding of security in global studies? What is the role of different actors in the definition and implementation of global security strategies? This course seeks three complementary goals: first, it presents the main notions and theoretical approaches to the study of contemporary security and conflict; second, it analyses the evolution of contemporary conflict, as well as the transformation of conventional and non-conventional challenges to global security; third, it explores some conflicts and security challenges particularly relevant for the understanding of contemporary security and, more broadly, global international relations.
