The course aims to create an understanding of international security management in a macro socio-political science perspective as well as support the recognition of ‘good governance’ as a subject in its own right, emphasizing the need for management skill-sets to support SSM and good governance. The course begins with a comprehensive overview of
theoretical and normative frameworks which have informed the evolving literature on international security studies dating back to some of the earlier philosophical thinking in this area. Students will also be provided with comprehensive exposure to trends in international development and conflict resolution, with links to more contemporary thinking on state building and state formation. The role of international and sub-regional organisations and state actors. An overview of central development theory and concepts will also be covered, enabling students to draw evidence-based linkages between both the security and development disciplines.
