    This unit analyses those key international institutions, issues and events that will shape the twenty-first century. While the end of the Cold War was heralded as ushering in a new world order of nuclear disarmament, international cooperation and global peace, the twenty-first century has instead confronted us with a range of new and continuing security challenges, from nuclear proliferation, to climate change, to widespread conflict in the developing world. This unit will examine the origins, nature and significance of key global issues, institutions, and events, and assess their potential for promoting international anarchy and / or order in the twenty-first century.
