The study of security lies at the heart of international relations. Traditionally, the study of international security focused on relations between states and their competing political, military and economic interests. However, since the end of the Cold War, international security studies have broadened to encompass such dangers as transnational terrorism, pandemics and environmental degradation. This unit begins by examining the traditional theoretical perspectives used to study security relations between states and concludes by assessing the security challenges that have emerged as a part of the process of globalisation in the post-Cold War period.
