Module 2: Global Security
The global security landscape has changed radically, with the expansion of new threats and their linkages to each other. While states remain the key organizing principle of international relations, security is no longer centralized and the term security itself has taken on new meanings.
Terrorism, extremist movements, non-state actors, state failures and decay, weapons proliferation, refugee flows, climate change, organized crime, the role of technology and artificial intelligence, and devastating regional conflicts are all significant threats to national and global security. This module will provide an understanding of the evolution in how we comprehend security policy today, as well an overview of key challenges and opportunities from multiple dimensions –political, legal, economic etc.
Featured topics include:
- The Evolving Nature of Security
- Transnational Challenges in the 21st Century
- The Future of Warfare: Weapons & Technologies
- Conflict & Crisis Management I
- A World of Regions; Crisis Management II
In this module, participants acquire the understanding of how challenges and risks of global security are linked to each other in complex and dynamic ways; they experience in real time specific complex crises and acquire tools in strengthening security in different sectors. The participants create together with the experts an interactive environment to brainstorm for further solutions and networks.
