This unit is concerned with the question of the changing/evolving nature of violence in the international realm. Part one of the unit will trace the emergence of modern thought about violence through theoretical 'traditions' and the writings of Niccolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes through Hugo Grotius and Immanuel Kant to Carl von Clausewitz. The second part of the unit will trace the establishment of international laws and norms that attempt to regulate the use of force in the international realm, the emergence of humanitarian intervention and the relationship between sovereignty, international law and the use of force. The unit will conclude with an evaluation of the degree to which new international legal mechanisms have altered the way we think about the legitimate use of force.
