MA Terrorism,International Crime and Global Security

Coventry University

This interdisciplinary course is concerned with the threats posed by terrorism and international crime to national and global governance, human rights and ethics.

  • Since the end of the Cold War there has been a growing awareness of the changing nature of security threats facing individuals, communities and states worldwide. With intensifying economic, political, cultural and military globalisation, there is now a heightened awareness of terrorism and international crime.
  • Guest speakers and field trips2 are an integral part of the course, which include visits to the counter-crime, counter terrorism and counter modern slavery organisations.
  • Previous students have been able to work on placements2 with the local police forces, as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and international organisations within Europe, including the antimafia organisation AddioPizzo in Sicily, Ethicando in Paris, the UN NGO Women’s Federation for World Peace in Geneva, the Institute of Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin, CISS (International Cooperation South-South) in Italy, and Chatham House in London.
