Globalisation and Security
Dr Alan R Ingram (Geography)
About this course
This course draws on theory in critical geopolitics and related fields to examine evolving relations between globalisation and security. In particular it considers the nature, transformation and consequences of domopolitics (the governance of states in the name of 'homeland security') in an era of increasing global inequality and integration. The module explores these issues through a variety of thematical and empirical case studies and considers methods through which geopolitical issues can be researched. Finally, the module assesses the claim that the European Union represents a new form of polity uniquely suited to the challenges of globalisation.
