This course is intended as a comparative analysis of security policy at various levels and in various security sectors. The general theme of the module might be summarised as ‘from security policy to state action’. The goal of the course is to develop and strengthen students’ skills in understanding and analysis of various parts of comparison and analysis of security policies. A secondary goal of the course is to demonstrate how the comparative method and policy analysis are used within the research of security field.


This course provides students with the analytical skills to critically investigate the security policies of different countries in Europe and beyond. The first part of the module will introduce the academic field of policy analysis and familiarise students with its most important methods and theories. Specifically, the module will cover approaches to the international, state and individual level of analysis. It will unpack the process of security policy decision-making in order to identify the most significant actors and influences on different types of security policies. The course looks at the different stages of the ‘policy cycle’ (e.g. agenda-setting, implementation and evaluation), the determinants of security policy (e.g. public opinion, political parties, technology) as well as central themes in the study and implementation of security policy. The second part of the module will explore key issues in security policy analysis. It will compare and contrast the security policies of different countries and discuss variations in the security policy outlook of small, middle and great powers. Also, it will look into some of the most pressing topics on the current security policy agenda in different issue areas, such as military interventions, the fight against terrorism or the security implications of globalisation and the protection of human rights. In discussing these topics, particular emphasis will be placed on theory- guided analysis. While the module has a regional focus on the foreign policies of selected European countries, it will also cover issues related to the foreign policies of the US and the rising powers.
