About the course:
This course focuses on concepts of security, such as military and non-military security threats. Emphasis is placed on different theoretical perspectives and how they can explain actors' security policies. To practice the ability to analyse conflict developments within a region, a country or between two countries, students finish the course by writing a scenario analysis guided by the theories and concepts that are covered during Peace and Conflict Studies AI and AII.
