SEST 692 - Development & Natl Security
This hands-on seminar examines the nexus between development and security by blending theory and practice. First, students analyze the drivers of conflict and review how development and humanitarian assistance seek to mitigate its affects and strengthen fragile states. Next, the course provides an overview of insurgencies and presents development’s role in countering them, including in Vietnam, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan. We then explore how development is used to counter violent extremism, including in Pakistan and throughout Africa.  Finally, the course concludes by examining the national security implications of promoting democracy and human rights in the Arab world and beyond.
