Asymmetric Conflict Rsrch Prac

Asymmetric Conflict Research Practicum
The prevalence of civil conflict and asymmetric security threats have resulted in the dramatic growth of nontraditional security policy. To what extent have policymakers learned the lessons of the post-9/11 world, and to what extent is the global policy community prepared for the asymmetric, complex, and multifaceted operations that characterize 21st century conflict? Examples will be drawn from around the globe, with comparisons within and across regions, noting their impacts on institutions, policy processes, and human social systems. This course uses ongoing professional research projects on communications and international intervention, as well as Russian and Chinese hybrid warfare policies, as platforms for learning about global counterinsurgency and for students’ training in all phases of research methodology, including fieldwork interviewing techniques. 3 hrs. lect.
