Course summary

About this course

Understanding the interplay between international diplomacy and security.

This 100% distance learning programme is delivered in partnership KNECT365/Informa.

  • Provides a distance learning programme in Diplomacy and Security Studies for full-time employees
  • Encourages an advance understanding of the principles and developments of Diplomacy and Security Studies
  • Enables students to make an original contribution to the disciplines of Diplomacy and Security Studies and the advancement of professional security practice
  • Produces competent, informed reflectively and ethically competent students who have a developed academic understanding the key issues within Diplomacy and Security Studies and the theories which underpin the disciplines

This programme aims to introduce students to emerging paradigms within security studies, security, and diplomacy at both local and global levels. It will account for what we mean by the concept of ‘Security’ and explore some justifications for the increasing ‘securitisation’ of social life.

You will examine, among other questions, the growing diplomatic presence on the world stage of international organisations, non-governmental organisation and other actors, thanks in large part to developments in information and communication technology, and how this development impacts the formulation of treaties and international conventions.

The programme aims to provide an overview of important security events and issues of the 20th and 21st centuries including the evolving tensions of the Cold War. Finally, the modules will connect the conceptual basis of the discipline to some of the practical issues facing the international system and to some of the emerging security threats and issues pertaining to law enforcement, government agencies and the private sector. These include a critical view of threats from terrorism, organised crime, radicalisation, international negotiation and decision-making.
