POLI 3520 Seminar:Globalization and National Security (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

How have accelerated forces of globalization in recent decades affected national security? This course examines how globalization can amplify, change, and create challenges to state security. Through discussion and written work, this seminar addresses three major questions: (1) How do we define the concept of national security?; (2) How do states understand the complex and changing relationship between globalization and national security?; and (3) How do states respond to old and new national security challenges brought on by increased economic globalization and interdependence? We will explore these three interrelated questions in the context of a number of issue areas, such as conflict, defense procurement, trade, terrorism, and the environment.
