This course provides students with an introduction to international security studies offering a critical approach to the most pressing global challenges. Over the last 30 years, the so-called "globalization" has spurred a private sector's profound reckoning on the security challenges it is forced to face.

The current geopolitical fragmentation, brought about by the "Great Power Competition" and the Covid-19 pandemic, also requires the scientific community to grapple at once with International Relations, Geopolitics, Strategic Sciences, and International Law to adequately assess and manage increasingly complex scenarios and trends which are too powerful to stop, and too consequential to ignore. The overall aim is to equip the future leadership with an essential toolkit to navigate such complexity through an informed multidisciplinary vision that explores elements of international political economy, social/political sciences, strategic sciences, and basic tenets of international law.

The first part of the course will introduce students to current scientific landings on the geopolitical state-of-affairs, by analytically exploring the constructs of "strategic ("Great Power") competition", "international liberal order", "spheres of influence", "non-state actors", "multilateralism". It will then provide an understanding of the principles governing national and international security in contexts of "multi-polar" conflict.
The second part of the course will illustrate how such theoretical takes apply to crucial global issues such as: energy security and transition, climate-change, global supply chains, info-communication technology, data governance, and dual/military applications of artificial intelligence and emerging technologies.

Finally, an overview of essential strategic implications will be provided, visiting the contemporary "all-domain" warfare paradigms.

The course is cross-listed with ECN355.
