This unit examines power, conflict and the security states, societies and individuals. We begin by examining the causes of war and the evolution of strategic thought from classical times to the present. This leads to a discussion of both traditional and alternative theoretical frameworks of analysis.
We then focus on current debates within the field: nuclear strategy (including the deterrence or defence debate arising from ballistic missile defence), proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, regional conflicts and the development of grand strategy by the great powers. We conclude by focusing on emerging issues on the security agenda, such as migrations, energy, transnational crime and ecological deterioration.
