Inversión: Q1875

Del 25 al 29 de septiembre
Horario: 3:30 p. m. a 6:30 p. m.

Militaries are fighting forces meant to engage external enemies of the nations they represent in combat. But foreign intervention is broader and more complex than placing “boots on the ground.” This course explores topics related to foreign intervention through the lens of political economy and defense and peace economics. We will discuss economic theories of war and the state of research on defense and peace economics. Students will leave the course with an understanding of the economics of civil wars and coups, humanitarian aid, and counterterrorism policies. We will discuss the importance of propaganda in foreign policy, including propaganda in democratic societies. Students will leave the course with a broader understanding of foreign intervention and will be able to recognize the concepts covered in both contemporary and historical contexts.
