Instructional Method: Online. Security from Inside the State (3) This course enables students to answer questions such as how politics, organizations, and the policy processes inside states create conditions for peace and conflict, and to what extent do regime type, the perceptions of leaders, and past history influence a state's security goals in the international system by understanding and applying core concepts from security studies, domestic politics, and foreign policy. In other words, this course uses characteristics from inside a state as a tool for understanding security relations between states and their abilities to identify, prevent, and resolve conflict.

Instructional Method: Online. Causes of War (3) What factors and conditions explain patterns of peace and conflict in a global system of political, social, and economic actors competing for power, influence, and advantage? To answer this question, this course introduces students to core concepts, paradigms, and seminal debates from security studies broadly defined. The purpose is to establish a foundation for investigating the causes and dynamics of conflict at the interstate, regional, and global levels of analysis. This perspective integrates theory and practice, enabling students to contextualize and assess the strategies actors employ to advance their interests as well the underlying structural and configurational constraints shaping how these actors make decisions.

Conflict Assessment/Prevention

Ghais,S  
 
 
 
Instructional Method: Online. Conflict Assessment and Prevention (3) International conflicts and crises have sometimes been seen as essential events whose outcome determines subsequent geopolitical arrangements. On the other hand, the humanitarian and other costs of such conflicts have helped give rise to the concepts and operations of conflict prevention. In order to better prevent conflict, methods of assessing its likelihood, causes, and dynamics have been developed. This course therefore explores the methods and challenges of preventing the outbreak of armed conflict. Contemporary approaches to the assessment of conflict are surveyed and conflict assessment frameworks used by different organizations incorporate a variety of theoretical assumptions and empirical tools in order to gain a better understanding of the causes of violent conflict. The course also explores challenges of predicting the outbreak of conflict through the exploration of the early warning concepts and instruments and moving from early warning to preventive action. Students also consider cases of successful and unsuccessful prevention as practiced by national governments, NGOs, civil society organizations, the United Nations, and regional political organizations.

Instructional Method: Online. Politics of Global Development (3) This course offers examination into to the field of international development through examining the history, theory, and current approaches towards alleviating poverty and global inequality. The course focuses especially on who decides, how decisions are made, and what the impacts are of development strategies on the environment and on the most vulnerable members of society. The course also emphasizes critical analysis of the central assumptions and power relations that have influenced the field, and resulting discourses, policies, programs, and political arrangements. Students explore what development means, how to measure it, and how to understand attempts to balance between economic, ecological, and equity concerns. The course engages the key propositions that emerge in contemporary international development debates, and offers frameworks for evaluating theories, interventions and policies and offers a foundation for uncovering and assessing social structures, institutions, inequalities, and development policies as theories meet practice.

Furthermore, it examines a number of key environmental challenges including species extinction, food and agriculture, and climate change. Overall, it familiarizes students with the role power plays in the emergence of environmental problems and how power in turn can be wielded in the service of sustainability. Meets with SISG-768 102.
