Prerequisiti
Obiettivi formativi
The aim of the course is to introduce the student to the main security issues in international politics. Security Studies is moving from a purely state-centric focus anchored in the military instrument to one considering transnational issues with global implications, implying collaborative effort to face these issues. Transnational security issues include war, terrorism, conflicts, crime, population movements, famine, disease, natural disasters, and accidents.
The course examines the main theoretical approaches in Security Studies, the most important security challenges at the transnational level, and some measures needed to counter these threats.
