The Globalisation and Security unit provided by Open Universities Australia and Macquarie University will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the issues surrounding globalisation and security. You will learn about both the broad contextual issues and the minute and practical details affecting security in everyday life.
By the end of the unit you will be able to effectively analyse the causes behind the globalisation process and identify trends and connections between the different facets of human security. This in-depth analysis will give you an excellent and full view of this cross-discipline topic, preparing you further academic studies or a variety of different careers paths.
You will also be able to evaluate and assess the theoretical and practical measures being taken to address issues such as crime and corruption, terrorism, human rights, environmental security and the effects of global financial crises. This is an important and fascinating topic that will allow you to more fully comprehend the various global forces at play, and the logic behind why certain measures and initiatives are taken.
Furthermore, you will explore and evaluate the roles of regional security organisations and recognise the transnational challenges they face such as the threat of terrorism, the scrutiny of the media, and conflicts that arise from cross-cultural differences. You will gain an excellent understanding of the roles played by each of the organisation on the world stage and asses their methods of combatting the difficulties they face.
