Geopolitics:Geographies of War & Peace

The course introduces key ideas and contemporary themes of geopolitics. Students will learn about the geography of conflict, war and peace-making in the twentieth century, leading to an understanding of current and future trends and debates, including issues such as the New (and old) World Order, terrorism, peacekeeping and conflicts in and over 'cyberspace' and natural resources. We will introduce students to a wide-range of sources and to encourage critical use of media, academic material and internet resources. Our objective is that students taking the course will develop a deeper and life-long understanding of the geography of international affairs.
