LSHV-380 Values Issues in International Affairs
Douglas, William A.
Is the use of force justified, or even obligated, in world politics? Are the rules for moral behavior of nations different from those for individuals? Can there be just wars, either in classic times or in the nuclear age? When the imperatives of non-intervention and national security conflict, which should take priority, and who assigns such priorities? Is the nation-state still the appropriate unit for world politics, and if not, what options might we have, such as regionalism, divided sovereignty, or world government? These and other values issues are analyzed in this course that provides a broad survey of moral issues in foreign policy.
