Security Development Nexus

Please note: this is archived course information from 2023 for POLITICS 710.


The security-development nexus has become the leading paradigm for international interventions since the end of the Cold War, especially since the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks. This course engages with the advanced theoretical, normative and operational underpinnings of the ‘nexus’. The theoretical learning will then allow students to critically analyse the political economy and operational outcomes of international interventions.

For full course information see the Digital Course Outline for POLITICS 710.

Digital Course Outlines are refreshed in November for the following year. Digital Course Outlines for courses to be offered for the first time may be published slightly later.
