This seminar introduces students to the field of Strategic Studies. We will study strategy from an historical and theoretical perspective and critically analyze the different approaches to studying war and peace. After a general introduction to this field and the state of the art, in the second part of the course the students will together undertake an independent piece of research under the supervision of the lecturer, in an attempt to make an original scientific contribution.
