Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Security analysts and policymakers usually focus on the threats caused by North Korea. The unresolved conflict on the Korean peninsula and North Korea’s military and its WMD programmes are not the only issues that impact on security in Northeast Asia. Departing from the traditional focus on state-centred security, this course takes a broader perspective on security by also including non-traditional security and human security issues. This course also introduces students to feminist perspectives on international relations theory. The focus will be on the Korean peninsula and various aspects of security including economic (in)security and poverty, food security/food safety, human trafficking and transborder crime as well as environmental security.
