Course Description

**The deadline for withdrawal application of this course is 2022/03/18 (Fri.) 17:00.

This seminar is designed to introduce, discuss and work with the key concepts, wide-ranging
debates and on-going processes in the realm of European and international security. It is intended to revisit ‘classic’ security issues and exploring ‘newer’ ones – from terrorism to cybersecurity threats and pandemics – to highlight continuities and discontinuities in European and international security. In this regard, the seminar will pay special attention to the proliferation of the types of actors, sectors, rationales and technologies now associated with security practices. We will see that these developments have consequences as they further cut across and reconfigure well-known divides between internal and external security concerns in European and across the world, between policing and military operations, and between public and private spheres to name a few.

Course Objective
The overall aim of the seminar is to enable students to tackle the complexity of European and international security dynamics in a more comprehensive, theoretically rigorous and analytic manner.
By the end of this seminar, the students will be able to fully understand the shifting conceptualizations of security whilst applying them to specific topics and identifying their analytical and practical implications. Furthermore, they will have in-depth knowledge of the functioning of key institutions and actors’ practices in relation to the current, multiscale governance of European and international security
