MSFS-645 Emerging Global Security Challenges
Spring for 2010-2011
Bibbins Sedaca, N.
This course will examine how global security and stability are impacted by humanitarian, social, and governance challenges, which have traditionally fallen outside of security analysis and policy making. We will analyze four key issues (refugees, health, human rights, and democratization) and whether – and to what degree - each affects security issues. We will investigate the impact of these issues on existing and emerging conflict areas, the arguments for and against factoring these issues into security analysis, and the resulting practical realities on foreign policy development. Students will explore how policy makers and practitioners in these four arenas and the security field manage various elements of the foreign policy making process in light of the connections between these issues
