Module 3

Peace & Security

Module MATERIALS

In this module we explore the global governance of peace and security, in particular. How does international law and organization relate to international disputes, war and peace, humanitarian catastrophe, and other issues that invite legal or organizational multilateral responses? What are the challenges presented by conflict- in all of its forms- in a “society” of nations and other actors?
