Why do some regions of the world enjoy lasting peace and security, while others are plagued by conflict? This course will explore a potential answer to that question: security communities, or groupings of states in which a large-scale use of violence (such as war) has become very unlikely or even unthinkable. The course will investigate the theoretical basis for security communities, examine current security communities such as Europe and North America, and debate the possibilities for security communities in regions such as Africa and South America. Finally, the course will examine the policy possibilities that spring from the concept of security communities: are there actionable policies that we can use to promote the assurance of peaceful dispute resolution between states?
