National security is more than territorial integrity or a question of sovereignty. Globalisation, non-state actors, weapons proliferation, climate change, potential energy shortages and financial turmoil are forcing us to rethink security.The Prime Minister's 2008 National Security Statement, the changing nature of the state and our future security environment will be examined. New security threats will be considered in the context of risk and how the elements of national power can be applied to counter their effect. The course will review the changing nature of war and consider terrorism, insurgency and counterinsurgency theories and the effectiveness of intervention and stabilisation strategies to assist failed and failing states.The course will conclude with a comparative study of international security architectures and an assessment of Australias national security apparatus and approach.
