The end of Japanese economic superiority also coincided with the end of the Cold War, an event that brought about new regional and global dynamics, and with the new security challenges.

Meanwhile, Japanese culture has experienced a renaissance, with Japan recognised worldwide as a centre of global ‘cool’, and Japanese cultural products continuing to find new markets and influence new demographics worldwide.... [-]

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.

This MSc/LLM in International Relations, Security & Law introduces and familiarises students with contemporary issues relating to the course topics, examining them through legal and political viewpoints.

The interdisciplinary approach of the course sets it apart from other MSc courses on international security and LLM courses on domestic and international security law as does its broad conception of ‘security’, which encompasses both ‘traditional’ concerns and more novel threats.... [-]
