Summer Course 2023 (CPS-101) 17th – 28th July 2023



The concept of international ‘peace and security’ holds distinct meanings for various nations, influenced by their unique geopolitical, geostrategic, and social contexts. While the post-World War II era witnessed a relative period of tranquility following the establishment of the United Nations, the present security landscape is characterized by civil and intra-state conflicts, terrorism, organized crime, pandemics, the rise of nationalism, waning trust in global institutions, natural and manmade disasters, and the far-reaching impacts of climate change. These developments pose a severe threat to global stability, endangering the delicate equilibrium that underpins global peace.

Given that these challenges transcend national borders, the need for increased cooperation among states has become more critical than ever before. Regional and global multilateral institutions offer platforms for fostering collaboration, thereby offering a potential solution to this complex predicament. Consequently, an interdisciplinary approach that draws on various fields of study is essential to comprehend the causes and consequences of threats to both national and international peace and security.
