ARST 629 - Environmental Security/Conflct
Security remains one of the most controversial and contested concepts in international politics. New concepts, such as environmental security and environmental scarcity, have significantly contributed to the new security agenda. Understanding the causes and impacts of global environmental change, and the need to develop effective responses have become major issues of concern for the international community. This course introduces students to the debates that continue to animate the realm of international security studies and environmental politics. By reviewing trends in the scholarship on the environment and security, the course addresses some of the conceptual and contemporary issues relating to the impacts and effects of the environment on international, regional and national security, and the potential for social and political conflict in the Middle East and beyond. Topics of interest include resource wars and energy security, food security, climate change and migration.
