Artificial Intelligence in National Security

Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a fast-moving field, with dramatic research breakthroughs emerging regularly. Many of these have utility for national security actors, whether in the military, intelligence agencies, or policy-making communities. Accordingly, AI has a longstanding and deepening connection with national security. This course will help to contextualise these developments. It will explore the striking changes that AI is bringing to national security, including to military tactics and strategy and will investigate the ways in which culture shapes the employment of AI. It will also consider some ethical implications of AI in national security affairs.

Indo-Pacific: Culture and Decision Making

Description

The Indo-Pacific is emerging as one of the key regions in which international politics are redefined. It encompasses some of the world’s fastest growing economies, top world military powers, and rich cultures. Its economic dynamism rests on a maritime geography that has favoured connectivity and interdependence; its political make-up is defined by outstanding territorial disputes, unresolved Cold War issues, and an increasingly entrenched Sino-American structural competition; and its cultural traditions are both similar and different to Western traditions.

This particular course focuses on what is meant by the term "culture", how do people embedded in different cultures think, make judgements and decisions and when, why, and how culture matters in engagement with the Indo-Pacific region.  

This is a self-paced online course where students can access and work through the material at their own convenience. You will have access to this course for 3 months.

China-West Relations: Dilemmas and Lessons

China as a cultural and political entity creates anxiety in those parts of the world where liberalism has dominated for decades if not centuries. Citizens, policy-makers, and military are still catching up on their knowledge of China and cannot confidently deconstruct the complexity of a country that hosts a fifth of humanity and whose foreign interactions have been characterized by much ambiguity. 

This is a self-paced online course where students can access and work through the material at their own convenience.You will have access to this course for 3 months.

This course is particularly designed for all professionals working in the security and defence sector and those in business and industry with a specific focus on China and international security issues. It would also be suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Wargaming and Strategy

Description

Wargaming is undergoing a renaissance. Not since the interwar period (1919-1939) has the method been so popular with not only governments, militaries, and NGOs, but also with a host of public and private institutions. This may not be surprising. The modern world is presenting us with a host of novel challenges including pandemics, climate crises, the rise of great power conflict, supply chain vulnerabilities, cyber security threats, and radical politics. Many of these challenges are new and poorly understood. Others are interacting in new and complex ways. Wargaming offers a potential way to help discover and evaluate strategies for dealing with them. But how?

This is a self-paced online course where students can access and work through the material at their own convenience.

Strategic Communications

Description

Strategic communications is engaged with the shaping of long-term discourses in society. Strategic communicators aim to align these with their own values and interests. Through changing the attitudes and behaviour of their target audiences, they pursue strategic outcomes in politics and geopolitics.Strategic communications sits at the heart of any study of strategic affairs and a comprehensive understanding of international relations. It is ever present as states seek to gain advantage over other states, and as revolutionary and insurgent groups struggle to overthrow the status quo in their appeal to populations.In the 21st century, strategic communications is increasingly appropriated by state challengers as they prove more persuasive than those states they choose to subvert. Governments are struggling to respond to global challenges – ranging from violent conflict to climate change – that shock the social order. The shaping and control of messages – words, images, actions and non-actions – is increasingly difficult in a complex and constantly changing environment. In this course you will be introduced to the core concepts of strategic communications, frameworks of analysis, and different perspectives on strategic communications around the world such as China, Russia, Brazil, and South Africa.
