INTS 221 Population and National Security

Spring, Fall

An exploration of the shifting meanings and interpretation of “security,” particularly the securitization of population. The course covers a wide range of population topics, including aging, migration, the youth “bulge,” urbanization, health, and the demographic “bonus.” Population trends, their security implications, and their connections to issues such as development and the environment are examined. This course may be sequenced with INTS 340: The Politics of Migration for the purposes of the IS minor.
