Recent advances in the globalisation of communications technology - particularly the Internet, direct broadcast satellites and telecommunications have mutated the world in which traditional diplomacy was conceived and developed.

Social Media including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube have a tremendous impact. US President Donald Trump utilises Twitter on a daily basis to comment on national events in the US and international events in other parts of the world. Making the situation even more complex is the phenomena of "fake news” - where false reports are tweeted and retweeted globally to the extent that many find it difficult to distinguish what is factual from what is totally false....

Delivered with an equal measure of art and science, the MSc International Security and Diplomacy is a non-violent approach to the management of international relations and global issues which seeks to resolve conflict through discussion, negotiation and partnership.

International relations increasingly practised by a wide variety of actors, ranging from government officials to opinion-leaders from universities and the media to corporate and NGO representatives. In the compressed, accelerated, information-saturated precincts of the early 21st century, it is imperative to master the tools of public relations, advocacy, lobbying and strategic communications. The diplomats' brief is unambiguous: to advance or defend their country's political and economic place in the world by the most effective means. That is the purpose and the essence of diplomacy. In the MSc International Security and Diplomacy programme, an overview will be presented of deterrence, operative security and alliances which will include discussion of nuclear weapons and proliferation. The challenges of conflict prevention, management, and resolution, as well as the complexities of peace, will also be a core focus of the course.... [-]
