Module overview

In order to address any contemporary global challenge, it is vital that we understand the roots of the problem and its historical context. This module explores the broad history of conflict, enabling you to place global events within a wider context and consider how best to address them considering this historical background. It will introduce you to the history of civil and international war and consider the evolution of great-power conflict both prior to and since the Cold War. The module will also consider contemporary and future threats, such as new waves of terrorism and cyber conflict.
