About the content
This course aims to nail down some of the basic issues that have been argued in the current research on peace and security.
The course is divided into four parts:
- Week 1: "When is War Necessary?", raises the question of military intervention in light of theories of just war.
- Week 2: "Power Transition and War", discusses the argument that global transitions in power distribution lead to hegemonic wars.
- Week 3: "Democratic Peace, Democratic Wars", is a reappraisal of the democratic peace theory, and asks if democratization by force provides international security.
- Week 4: "Conditions for Peace", is directed toward our new assessment of paths toward durable peace.
- - Graduate Schools for Law and Politics, Policy Alternative Research Institute
