17.478 Great Power Military Intervention

Class Info

Examines systematically, and comparatively, great and middle power military interventions, and candidate military interventions, into civil wars since 1991. These civil wars did not easily fit into the traditional category of vital interest. These interventions may therefore tell us something about broad trends in international politics including the nature of unipolarity, the erosion of sovereignty, the security implications of globalization, and the nature of modern western military power.

This class has no prerequisites.

17.478 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by B. Posen and R. Petersen.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
