Law and Global Security
Global challenges, like cyberattacks, money laundering, human rights violations and terrorism are on the rise. People’s lives are affected by global and national insecurity. Law plays an increasingly important role in addressing the dangers caused by global challenges.
This programme focusses on the use of law in personal, national, and global security. It teaches students how to fact find, conduct research, strategically negotiate and lead when it comes to addressing international security matters. It looks at how the world has been changed by geopolitics, the pandemic, rising energy and food prices and technology, and how the law can be used to resolve these issues.
Specialists in law and global security are in demand across the world. Institutions such as the United Nations, the European Union, the Organization for European Economic Cooperation, NATO, and others require people who have strong legal skills in the international environment.
Graduates of this programme can look widely for roles in international and national institutions, dealing with national and global security issues, both in the public and private sectors, especially those concerned with human rights, compliance, anti-money laundering issues, energy and other forms of security.
