Objective: To investigate the current dynamics of the security and defense sector at the national, local and international levels.
Description: The Seminar on Defense, Security, Conflict and Peace (DESCOP) arises as a student initiative aimed at the analysis and research of the dynamics that make up the security and defense sector at national, local and international levels, since within the faculty, the spaces for analysis and discussion of these issues - fundamental for all internationalists - are very limited. In order to carry out the aforementioned, four lines of research have been created (1. Internationalization of the Armed Forces 2. Privatization of security and defense 4. Fight against drug trafficking), each with its respective members and field of study. With the creation of DESCOP, the panorama of those students who, interested in the emphasis of security and defense, had not found outside the normal curriculum an appropriate and dedicated space, as already mentioned, to a fundamental field of International Relations, will be broadened.
Topics of research of the research group:
Internationalization of the Armed Forces: military diplomacy, defense cooperation and joint operations
Privatization of security and defense
Fight against drug trafficking: understanding trafficking networks and the response of state institutions.
Line of research: Peace, security and conflicts.
