We examine the trial of Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg, the 1968 massacre at My Lai in Vietnam, the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, the International Criminal Court, and post-9/11 US policies on detention, torture, and trial, including the response of Congress and the Supreme Court, and related topics.

Globalization and US National Security

This course examines globalization as a contemporary security phenomenon, and potential US policy responses. Globalization is simultaneously an integrating force and a fragmenting one. Globalization can widen economic gaps, fueling anger and frustration among already disparate groups. Further, it has resulted in what some call the democratization of information, opening the floodgates of access and linkages to those with both positive and negative intent. The relationship between globalization, before and after the 2008 global financial meltdown, and future security issues is explored, focusing on impacts relevant to US national security strategy.
