Political Science | Democracy and National Security
Y311 | 13348 | Brazys

Democracy and National Security will focus on the interplay between
two vital concepts in political life.  This course first delves into
a deep theoretical and conceptual development of both democracy and
national security.  The course traces the evolution and interplay of
these concepts from Greco-Roman times to today.  The course then
shifts gears and re-examines the relationship between democracy and
national security through the lens of contemporary political events
in the United States and around the world.  Special attention will
be paid throughout the course to any (possible) tensions that arise
between aims for democracy and national security.
