This course examines the impact of globalization on the international security environment. Globalization is both an integrating force and a fragmenting one. Thus, while globalization has been credited with economic advancement and cooperation, it can also foster inequality and displacement, fueling anger and resentment. At the same time, globalization has eroded the primacy of the nation state, opening the possibility that future security threats are more likely to arise from transnational organizations in the mould of Al Qaeda than from governments. This course will examine the challenges that these changes present to international security as well as the opportunities that globalization opens for peace.
