How can we understand and prepare for current and prospective challenges in global security?
The course reflects the Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme’s aims of examining the multiple dimensions of global security, identifying and analysing transformative technologies, outer space security and its relationship to terrestrial security, and using insights from neuroscience to further our understanding of international affairs.
Structured to examine the connections among the various dimensions of global security, the Symposium recognises that a broad range of security issues must be analysed simultaneously in order to understand, prepare for, and respond to current and future challenges.
This course is composed of three modules
The three modules of the course can be followed separately or together.
This three-day course will address a number of key themes in global security.
As a participant, you will:
- develop your knowledge around a broad range of security issues
- gain a comprehensive understanding of some of the most significant technological developments over the coming decades
- be equipped with the critical and analytical skills to address the implications of these trends
From the frontiers of outer space to emerging transformative technologies, this course will explore the multiple dimensions of global security and incorporate insights from neuroscience into our understanding of contemporary international affairs.
This examination will bring current global challenges into sharper focus while emphasizing the need for new paradigms to understand, prepare for and respond to the challenges of the future.
