This unit is concerned with the study of ‘security’ in all the breadth that this notion has gained over the past decades. Starting from an analysis of the classical understanding of security which links state sovereignty with warfare we will investigate new security challenges. The unit offers an introduction to a critical understanding of security as a socially and politically constructed form of government.
