The post-Cold War era has seen the end of some threats to international security and the rise of others. Although the central threat of nuclear war that infused the Cold War has receded, it has been replaced with myriad threats that appear to belie solutions. This course considers how to define international security and how this process affects our conceptions of international threats. The course focuses on the prospects for peace and conflict in specific regions of the world such as Europe and Asia as well as considers some of the vexing issues such as nuclear proliferation, nationalism and ethnic conflict, economics, and environmental issues.
