This is an advanced program focused on the regulation of contemporary societies in a globalized world. It reflects major political issues but as well their resolution. Moreover, it offers courses focused on the regulation of international politics at the European and Global levels during which students will acquire the knowledge and the skills required to understand and influence the world of tomorrow.
In addition to being an absolute priority for governments across the world, security has colonized our language as much as our everyday lives. Not a day goes by without politicians and media outlets mentioning yet another ‘security issue’. The master’s program in International and Security Politics asks what this tells us about our contemporary world and whether our world has really become more dangerous and uncertain than before.
At the intersection of international relations studies, security and defense studies, political theory, sociology, and history, this program provides a deep understanding of how security and international security transform both conceptually and practically in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world. It does so by analyzing the role of different actors in shaping and addressing security issues which develop beyond the single framework of action of States. The program seeks to provide students with the necessary critical skills for understanding and addressing the social-political mechanisms driving security-related issues (from transnational armed conflicts and violence to environmental and IT security), and the growing uncertainty attached to them.
