INAF-379 Somalia to Afghanistan: A New World
Fall for 2017-2018
This seminar examines the evolving use of military power, in conjunction with diplomacy, law enforcement and humanitarian assistance, to resolve complex civil-military challenges to U.S. security. In an era of growing globalization, with the United States facing such transnational threats as terrorism, ethnic violence and the proliferation of mass destruction technologies, the distinction between domestic and international crises is increasingly blurred. This situation raises significant questions about the appropriate use of Armed Forces and Defense resources in responding to these new threats to U.S. security. Degree candidates will have an opportunity to explore the policy dilemmas facing today's national leaders as they make decisions concerning terrorism and homeland defense.
