Globalization, Terrorism and Global Insurgency

How does globalization change the nature of terrorism, civil conflict, and great power conflict to create a global security environment characterized by a series of hybrid asymmetric threats? What are the connections between the infrastructure of globalization, transnational networks and international extremism and conflict? This course will focus on four modules that link aspects of globalization to global counterterrorism, counterinsurgency, and great power asymmetric conflict:

1) migration, immigration, and the movement of people,

2) illicit international markets and financing,

3) global communications, and

4) the connections between international relations, foreign-policy, and political violence worldwide.

Skill development will focus on policy evaluation and analysis, oral briefings, collaborative project management, and collaborative policy strategy papers.

Note** this course will enroll significant Middlebury undergraduates but is designed as an NPTS seminar.
