Modules

This two-part module addresses a number of fundamental issues, the most important of which defines what we actually mean by the concept. This pursuit is dominated by debates between a variety of discourses: namely, those who seek to retain the discipline’s focus purely on military conflict and those who argue that in a globalised world Security Studies needs to be expanded to a consideration of economic, environmental as well as social issues. This module will seek to address these debates in the context of national and international security issues. It will show that the debates between the traditionalists and the advocates of “new thinking” are having a profound impact on the discipline as both military and non-military issues begin to compete for the attention of academics and policy elites.
