INR3003 War and Terrorism: Introduction to Strategic Studies
Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
Terrorism, the invasion of Iraq and Australian led peacekeeping intervention in the region have increased interest in warfare and strategic issues in a variety of rapidly evolving scenarios. The use of force in world politics and the history of modern war have become an integral part of our daily lives. To understand such issues, students need to develop an in depth perspective on the development of strategic studies in the contemporary world. This course will focus on developments in strategic studies, including land, air and sea power, and their application to theories and issues. Terrorism, Peacekeeping, weapons of mass destruction, and international law all play a part in the relationships that shape contemporary warfare. The course is particularly suited to International Relations and History students.
