INST 401 Global, Sustain & Security
In the 2010 National Security Strategy of the United States, President Obama articulates the need for whole of society approaches to tackling tough transnational issues. Furthermore, some experts believe that in the decades ahead, global governance will be a characterized by complexity and ambiguity, with governance structures reflecting the influence of states, NGOs, IGOs, for-profit companies, and other agents. In this seminar, we will investigate collaborative approaches to addressing national and transnational security related matters, especially those that are rooted in the economic, environmental, and social dimensions of sustainable development.
