The student will be confronted with a wide array of ideas on the actual use of information in terms of its deployment during conflict and war. In essence, the course describes the salient ways that information can be utilized to influence the minds of a target audience through psychological operations. This includes the population, armed forces and also the strategic leadership of the opposing state or other contending group or party. The history and development of information dissemination and psychological operations is discussed in the context of the methods used, and the ethical issues that may arise therein. A number of case studies will be use to challenge the students, who will, as a result, learn to analyse and evaluate selected contexts within which they can employ various media through which information can be disseminated to achieve strategic objectives.

SS-5Irregular and Asymmetric Warfare03 Cr Hrs

State and non-state entities are increasingly adopting asymmetric means to counter their adversaries, including terrorism and insurgency to influence or control a population, avoid sustained open battle, and win the political contest by avoiding decisive military engagements. Such conflicts are inherently protracted, and immensely costly in terms of human and material losses. This course will educate and provide students with a strong foundation in the conceptual, definitional, strategic and ethical issues related to the study of irregular warfare, its history, and the theory behind guerrilla and revolutionary warfare, and terrorism; with special attention being provided to actual conflicts through case studies drawn from the 20th and 21st centuries. Students will explore the underlying political, social, economic, and other factors that lead to the birth or evolution of insurgencies and terrorist movements, and the competing strategic approaches to insurgency and counterinsurgency in particular, by tracing evolutionary phases of insurgency and counter-insurgency from the Maoist version of the "people's war" in China to the development of global jihad. This course also concentrates on the issues and dilemmas that conventional militaries have faced in trying to adapt to irregular warfare, with specific reference to Pakistan and whether or not its military is the ideal or only instrument in defeating its multiple complex insurgencies. Attention will also be given to an exploration of the criminal-terrorist-insurgency nexus, with specific regards to narco-insurgencies.

SNS-554Revolution in Military Affairs/Technology/Warfare03 Cr Hrs

In a world of drones, terrorism, and nuclear proliferation, has the very nature of war itself changed since the fall of Communism a mere twenty three years ago? In our age of digital technology we still follow the linear evolution of warfare and humanity once calmly traced by military and strategic historians? This class will explore the latest in "Revolution in Military Affairs" (RMA) that stems from the idea of total dominance through information technology and situates these discussions in the political, social and cultural role of war and conflict today. Topics to be explored include whether the increasing reliance on private military companies as public budgets shrink, and the question of moral obligation for military intervention. This course will also discuss phenomenon such as asymmetric warfare, cyber war, and future warfare, which includes the exponential development of technology and its impact on military affairs through the use of advancements in robotics, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, cryogenics and genetics in future warfare, as well as providing a thorough grounding of the possibility of the singularity and its impact on warfare. As a whole the class will undertake a thorough examination of the changing nature of war and conflict in the 21st Century. Students will have the opportunity to explore their own specific interests. Most importantly, the readings are meant to create a dialogue between theory and the world out there in order to explore the so-called nature of war. As such, the course will rely heavily on recent and current affairs from news media and policy analysis.
