Course Description

Why do states resort to war? What are the stable conditions of peace? Are certain regimes more war prone than others? What impact have nuclear weapons have had on conditions of war and peace in the global order? Have they reduced the prospects of great power war? These are some of the key questions that we will try and answer in this course. No prior knowledge of international politics or security studies is necessary but an interest in these issues is desirable.
