Program overview

Borders have become a key site and central concern of global security practices and theory, from the Mexican-United States border to the Mediterranean ports of the EU. The many facets of borders are introduced and analysed in this programme: they are understood as containers of identity, sites of power, and points of weakness where the mobility of people (eg terrorists, migrants) and things (eg drugs, weapons) can disrupt prevailing forms of security. These compulsory modules include: - Approaches to Research Design (Semester 1) - Borders Internship (double-weighted – 40 CATS) (Semester 2) - Global Borders and Security (Semester 1) - Dissertation (triple-weighted - 60 CATS)
