POLIS 3101 - Strategic Culture and International Security

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2014

The course is designed to draw together a variety of areas dealt with in International Studies. The study of the international system is first and foremost one of perceptions and perspectives. Indeed, the very depiction of the world as a single international system is a facet of perspective. The course sets out to test these boundaries and forms of perception, by first of all examining holistic approaches to looking at the world and security, and then turning to perspectives from individuals, individual states and groups of states. Elements of Politics, Security Studies, History and Area Studies are at the heart of the course.
