This programme provides a good grounding in the study of, approaches to, and issues in, international security and the challenges of national security planning in the era of increased concerns about terror. It examines how state, non-state and supra-national actors behave and interact in managing or causing threats to international security and peace. It deals with issues such as the emerging synergy between national and international security and the use of non-military tools to combat terrorism and the infringement of civil liberties and problems of social cohesion in national security planning.
