Course content

This programme explores the link between national and global security and the role of peace-building in developing multi-layered communities and nations.

Our students will benefit from specialised, systematic and in-depth study focused on the relationship between diplomacy and international security and peace-building.

They will utilise appropriate theories, concepts and methods associated with this area, while exploring the relationships between development and peace-building, civil-military relations, cyber security, as well as the wider global security context in which politics, trade and conflict occur.

This programme will mostly be taught in the evenings and on Saturdays.
