##

States are increasingly using remote control methods, such as drones, private military companies and special operations units, to engage in activities traditionally performed by conventional armed forces.

This course looks at the reasons why, including technological innovation; security privatisation; and risk aversion among politicians and the public. It also studies the opportunities that remote methods provide to circumvent the law.

We’ll ask how our understanding of war and security is changing, and how states in the future will ensure our security through such non-traditional means.

This course will take an in-depth look at this subject, so you’ll need some pre-existing knowledge of the technical and theoretical issues covered.
