NS4880 Seminar on Legal and Military Responses to Political Violence

The course will first review the variety of legal and military policy options open to any state that confronts political violence, with particular attention to short versus long-term consequences of different policy options. It then analyzes a few individual cases (the British in Ulster, violence in Spain) in depth, in order to assess how different policy options combine or cancel each other.
