Students will engage with internationally known experts on a variety of peace and security topics, which may include nuclear politics, trade wars, environmental security, humanitarian intervention, terrorism and more. The goal of the unit is to enable students to confront, digest and critique the many viewpoints on peace and security issues essential to global governance today, as well as understand the interconnected nature of these critical topics.
