INTS 15 Violence and Security
Violence and Security is a multidisciplinary introduction to scholarship on the causes, consequences, and possible prevention of armed violence between groups. Using multiple social science disciplines, we will examine armed violence within, between, and across states, ranging from civil war, "ethnic" conflict, insurgency, and inter-state war. The course addresses the trade-offs created by different political solutions to the problem of security, and features a group simulation exercise to explore the challenges faced by governments and non-governmental organizations when they seek to ameliorate it.
