PUAD 5655 National Security Policy

An intensive investigation simulation based investigation of U.S. national security policy-making processes and structures and the crucial but often tense relationship between the United States and other major powers and international institutions, as each actor strives to promote security in a globalizing age plagued by terrorism and other major security threats. Special emphasis is placed on the role the United States has played in forging and shaping the current world order, including the United Nations and NATO, and the challenges that lie ahead in making the world safe for promoting democracy and ensuring human security. This course requires students to analyze central issues in American foreign policy as they relate to multilateral efforts to deal with critical global issues.
