Why this course?

Internationally and domestically, security, broadly defined, is among the most pressing concerns facing states.

Adding to the complexity is the increasingly broad definition of 'security' as new challenges emerge – for example in relation to climate change – while 'traditional' ones – such as terrorism – are reconstructed, along with the heightened interdependencies between states and within their critical infrastructures.
