This is the first of a year-long two semester course taught in conjunction with Security in Context, an international research initiative tackling urgent issues of global importance including climate change, inequalities, and war. Traditionally, security has been understood through the prisms of militaries, policing, borders, and surveillance. However, for many populations around the world, these traditional practices of security lead to insecurity in their daily lives: economic precarity, social dislocation, imprisonment or marginalization. The course will introduce students to alternative notions of security from an interdisciplinary and global South perspective that challenges narrow Western ideas of security. Students who complete the two semesters will co-produce original content for the initiative in the form of articles, interviews, videos, podcasts or other material. Keywords: Climate change, politcal economy, global institutions
Comments: 
In/Justice Students should generally expect to spend 6 hours per week on work outside of class time.
Instructor Permission: 
Permission is required for interchange registration during the add/drop period only.
