In the post-Cold War era insurgency has become the predominant form of conflict and now tops the list of major security concerns. Understanding the origins and tactics of insurgency will allow students to develop nuanced analyses of how security strategy should be improved to combat the emergent non-state threats of the twenty-first century. How have insurgent tactics evolved in response to changing military, political, technological and geographical conditions? What are the implications of insurgency for international intervention and homeland security policy?

This course brings Middlebury and Monterey students together in pursuit of this broad policy objective.
