European Security Dilemmas and Intelligence 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Europe is under pressure and what constitutes a security threat is changing, too: a larger Russian presence in the region and increased risk of terrorism, but also fundamentalist and right-wing tendencies, the risk of pandemics, cyber terrorism, and European governments struggling to respond in unison to increasing numbers of refugees. Drawing on European schools of thought within international security studies, this course explores current intelligence and security dilemmas in Europe. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin 
Core Course Week: Study tour within Sweden + a two-day seminar in Stockholm 
Prerequisite: An international relations or political science course at university level.
