The course provides an overview of security issues and conflict situations in major world regions. It starts by focusing on transatlantic relations in the security and defence area, focusing both on NATO and autonomous European security initiatives, such as the Common Security and Defence Policy. Specific attention will be paid to recent challenges to the region's security: disinformation campaigns in connection to Russia, the identitarian construction of security, Europe's strategic autonomy and its relations to the neighbouring regions. Following the first part, the course will shift its attention to cover the major global regions, particularly those relevant to Europe and its strategic concerns, including Middle East and North Africa, post-Soviet space, Sub-Saharan Africa, East Asia and South Asia. Individual examples of security problems, interstate and internal conflicts, regional organizations and geopolitical issues will be analyzed against the context of theoretical concepts to which the students have been introduced in previous courses (balance of power, securitization, human security, interdependence etc.). The main goal of the course is to help students understand the relations between such concepts and specific examples of empirical practice, utilize the former for rigorous analysis of the latter and contextualize regional problems vis-a-vis broader international and global processes.

The course outlines the security situation and conflict relationships in five major world regions: East Asia, Middle East and North Africa, South Asia, post-Soviet space, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Individual examples of security problems, interstate and internal conflicts, regional organizations and geopolitical issues will be analyzed against the context of theoretical concepts to which the students have been introduced in previous courses (balance of power, securitization, human security, interdependence etc.). The main goal of the course is to help students understand the relations between such concepts and specific examples of empirical practice, utilize the former for rigorous analysis of the latter and contextualize regional problems vis-a-vis broader international and global processes.

Students will gain and broaden their expertise in security issues of selected world regions. Through the focus on the interplay between general context and regional practice, they are expected to improve their ability to move between different levels of abstraction in analytical work, especially when applying theoretical concepts on specific empirical issues. Presentations and class discussions are designed to test and improve the students’ presentation and rhetorical skills, while the final paper will examine their analytical skills and ability to concisely and persuasively present their arguments.

Students must fulfill ALL the requirements stated below. A student who will not meet but a single one of the obligations will not be allowed to pass the course!

  • participation in 5 partial multiple-choice tests (5 x 15 = 75 points)
    • participation in ALL five tests is required
    • absence from a test must be reported at least 24 hours before the seminar to the lecturer via his email (see above) – only an excuse based on a medical approval or a comparatively serious reason will be accepted
    • The tests cover the content of all required readings as well as content presented in the lectures. It is expected that the student, firstly, develops a comprehensive understanding of the conflict or security situation; secondly, contextualizes her/his knowledge with regard to different theoretical perspectives; and, thirdly, applies the acquired knowledge in related settings, if required. Basic knowledge of mainstream IR theories (realism, liberalism, constructivism) is thus expected.
  • policy paper (to be presented no later than January 15, 2020) (25 points)
    • the paper will address the issue of how to best solve a particular conflict from the list attached to each description of the seminars below
    • the structure of the policy paper should include an introduction into the topic, an analysis of the main problem(s) and a final set of recommendations
    • expected length of the paper: 2000 words
    • the papers shall be submitted via Moodle
    • note on plagiarism:
      • presenting a paper which uses sources without making a proper reference to them will lead to an expulsion of a student from the course and possible other disciplinary action
      • same procedure will be applied if a student presents a paper which he or she already presented in another course

The course opens with an introductory lecture on the significance of regionalism in contemporary security studies and the role of regions in the practice of international politics. It is followed by five lectures and seminars, each lasting 80 minutes, analyzing individual world regions in detail. The course concludes with a final class discussion on the relevance of specific regions for global politics and international security. The seminars take the form of dedicated, complex multiple-choice tests on the topic of each of the lectures. The tests will substitute the seminars following each lecture. Students are expected and requested to prepare for the seminars by reading assigned literature and by reviewing the lessons preceding them.
