This seminar-style course aims to give the students a good understanding of key security issues facing post-Soviet Russia and Eurasia, an understanding that is conceptually-informed and theory-driven. The course is fractured into three main modules: on Jihadist terrorism, ethno-separatist conflict, and interstate war. Each module consists of three classes. The first classes of each module provide the students with basic concepts and causal theories necessary for grasping the general phenomena of jihadist terrorism, ethno-separatist conflict, and interstate war. The two subsequent classes are case study-based inasmuch as they draw on the empirical richness of the region. The course thus offers a balanced insight into the key regional security issues, an insight that is not confined to the empirical complexity of the case studies, but allows the students to analyze these phenomena with respect to the general literature. Throughout the course, invited lectures will be delivered by experts and academics to help the students grasp the complexity of issues covered from a variety of individual and research perspectives.
